    Book details

Fully illustrated with over 150 illustrations. Starting with a mass of anecdotes from contemporary observations in Italy and rural England, Elworthy, using all of his skills as a folklorist and etymologist, delves deeper. He gives examples of the belief on a world-wide basis and far back in time, to classical paganism and beyond. He also elaborates all of the methods that have been used to ward off the jettatura, including talismans, spells, spitting, hand gestures and many others.

Frederick Thomas Elworthy (1830 – 1907) was an English philologist and antiquary.

    I bought this book many months ago but haven't gotten around to reading it. I hate reading books. I like the topic and genre though.
