I think that my best apology for the insignificant size of this volume is the very character of the material composing it. In preparing the legends I sought especially for "weird beauty"; and I could not forget this striking observation in Sir Walter Scott's "Essay on Imitations of the Ancient Ballad": "The supernatural, though appealing to certain powerful emotions very widely and deeply sown amongst the human race, is, nevertheless, a "spring which is peculiarly apt to lose its elasticity by being too much pressed upon."" -- Lafcadio Hearn
