Summary

1883. Other volumes in this set include ISBN number(s): 0766177424, 0766177432, 0766177459. Volume 3 of 4. Jacob Grimm was perhaps the first man who commanded a wide enough view of the whole field of Teutonic languages and literature to be able to bring into focus the scattered facts which show the prevalence of one system of thought among all the Teutonic nations from Iceland to the Danube. In this he was materially aided by his mastery of the true principles of philology, which he was the first to establish on a firm scientific basis, and which enabled him to trace a word with certitude through the strangest disguises. As a storehouse of facts within the special province of Teutonic mythology, and as a clue to the derivation and significance of the names of persons and things in the various versions of myth, this work has never been superseded and perhaps it never can be. Contents: poetry; specters; translation; devil; magic; superstition; sicknesses; herbs and stones; spells and charms.
