The Golden Bough by J.G. Frazer (12 Volume Set, Hardcover)
An incredible collection of the world's myths, legends and magical rituals. Frazer spent much of his life researching these interesting primitive customs. His initial impulse was to discover the origins of the search for the Golden Bough from a tree in the Grove of Diana, and spent over 25 years studying primitive customs, rituals, and magic. Rich intellectual anthropology of the old world that once made up much of the British empire. Frazer takes us on a journey from magic and religion to science and back again.
