This classic text describes the many afflictions said to result from being given the "evil eye" — as recorded in the days of the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans up to the late 19th century. A thorough study of the notion about harmful or bewitching stares, it focuses on superstition and folklore surrounding the use of gestures, amulets, incantations, and other protective acts to ward off the power of the evil eye. Enhanced with hundreds of illustrations of evil-preventing charms — from the author's personal collection — this in-depth study will appeal to students and scholars of folklore and anyone intrigued by tales of the supernatural. 199 illustrations.

Reprint of the John Murray, London, 1895 edition.
