Anecdotes and Traditions: Illustrative of Early English History and Literature




John Bowyer Nichols and Son










1st edition






This is a rare collection of some 250 extracts from old manuscripts that covers a wide variety of anecdotes and traditions from a plethora of old manuscripts.

It was printed for the Camden Society in 1839 and it contains 32 pages of the minutes of a meeting of this society held on May 2, 1839.

One of the more interesting anecdotes is that of the "Holy Mawle."

"The Holy Mawle, which they fancy hung behind the church door, which when the father was seventie, the sonne might fetch to knock his father in the head as effete and of no more use."
