Description

A Victorian collection of moon lore: myths, folklore, superstitions and just plain whimsy from all lands. Although contemporary astronomers had fairly well wrapped up the question of whether there was water and air on the moon, Harley still suspected that the moon was inhabited. Chapters include: The Man In The Moon; The Woman In The Moon; The Hare In The Moon; The Toad In The Moon; Other Moon Myths; The Moon Mostly A Male Deity; The Moon A World-Wide Deity; The Moon A Water-Deity; Lunar Fancies; Lunar Eclipses; Lunar Influences; and, Moon Inhabitation.

This book has 187 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1885.
