Myth-Land by Edward Hulme
Publication: 1886 Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington First Edition
Authored by Edward Hulme, a work dedicated to the lore of mythical animals. "Our subject very naturally divides itself into two obvious sections - the one dealing with wholly untrue and impossible creatures of the fancy, the other with the strange beliefs and fancies that have clustered round the real creatures we see around us." It therefore touches upon stories about the Basilisk, the Cockatrice, the Chimera, the Unicorn, the Manticora, the Dragon, the Onocentaur, the Gorgon, Anthropophagi, the Phoenix, the Sphinx, Satyrs, Fauns, etc."
