    A Dictionary of English Folklore af Jacqueline Simpson (waltzmn)
    waltzmn: Brewer's Dictionary covers world folklore, and so cannot be replaced by a single volume of national folklore -- but if you want English folklore, there is no better book than this edition by Jacqueline Simpson and Steve Roud.

    The Reader’s Encyclopedia af William Rose Benét (waltzmn)
    waltzmn: William Rose Benét, in his original publication of The Reader's Encyclopedia, admitted his debt to Brewer's Dictionary. Think of Benet's publication as a revised and improved edition. One suggestion: Don't try for the newer editions of Benet; go for the earlier ones, before the more recent editors cut out all the excellent folklore material and replaced it with all the modern "it's not art unless no one can understand it" type stuff.… (mere)

I love this book and reread it periodically. Full of juicy nuggets of information and history as created by imagination. ( )

The Wordsworth Dictionary of Phrase & Fable explains the origins of the familiar and the unfamiliar in everyday speech and literature, including the colloquial and the proverbial, and embracing archaeology, history, religion, the arts, science, mythology, and characters from fiction. This invaluable dictionary, which revises and updates the original work of Dr Ebenezer Cobham Brewer, encompasses material from all over the English speaking world and cites many equivalents from other European countries. The inclusion of quotations which accompany and illustrate many of the entries adds hugely to the value of this legendary work of reference.

Used it quite a bit. A good one to have if you are writing in the fantasy genre. ( )
