Excerpt from Tom Tit Tot: An Essay on Savage Philosophy in Folk-Tale The world-wide superstition, examples of which form the staple of this book, has scarcely received the attention warranted by the important part which it has played, and still plays, in savage and civilized belief and ritual. The book is an enlargement of a lecture on "Magic in Names," delivered at the Royal Institution in March 1917. There are incorporated into it some portions of an Essay on Savage Philosophy in Folk-lore, which was published in 1898. The book has been long out of print, and I beg to thank Messrs. Duckworth and Co. for permission to make extracts therefrom. I have also to thank my wife for her valued help in the tedious work of revision of proof sheets.
