Książki o szkockim folklorze + trochę bibliografii o folklorze angielskim, walijskim

Przyszło mi do głowy, że ktoś może interesować się tematyką wyspiarską trochę bardziej od strony etnograficznej/ folklorystycznej. Jako, że takie właśnie studia skończyłam (etnologia na UJ), ale niestety nie miałam zbytniej możliwości pracy w zawodzie – pozostaje mi szperanie za książkami. Pamiętam wykłady Ś.P. prof. Piotra Kowalskiego z folklorystyki,  kiedy to swoimi opowieściami zarażał nas pasją do opowieści dziwnych i cudownych. Właśnie tego typu książki znajdują się w poniższej bibliografii, którą nie pamiętam już gdzie wyszperałam. Duchy, wróżki, hobgobliny i inne przedziwne stwory znajdują się w tym zbiorze. Nic tylko zasiąść i czytać. Może ktoś posiada w swoich zbiorach jakąkolwiek z tych książek? Chętnie się zapoznam/wymienię:)

Na pewno poszperam za tymi pozycjami kiedyś w brytyjskich antykwariatach i obiecuję, że podzielę się wrażeniami osobiście na blogu.
