Notes:

Donated by the author.

A brilliant survey of the many remarkable people involved in movements such as Paganism, Modern Witchcraft and Earth Mysteries who found inspiration in the Cornish landscape.  

Includes several sections on the Museum (and a reproduction of the postcard of the notorious Horned God with tarred babies tableau).

Fascinating photographs include one of William Paynter sitting inside his museum in Looe (which probably influenced Cecil Williamson); as well as photographs of many now eminent figures looking remarkably youthful.
