'Written shortly before Sir Walter's death in 1832, these letters form a general discussion on demonology and the supernatural from Old Testament days to the Middle Ages, ranging from the creed of Zoroaster in Persia, to the scriptures of Mexico and the Incas of Peru. Germanic and Celtic superstition is also discussed, as well as the traditions of Irish, Welsh and Arthurian legend.'
