Notes:

Although the subtitle calls this a collection of colour photographs, the text includes a great deal of interesting folklore - for example, a reference to a legend that King Arthur's spirit haunts the cliffs at Boscastle in the shape of a chough. The section on Zennor has references to witches holding their Sabbats on the nearby moors, and to mermaids giving the power of healing and divination to humans.
