I found this 1899 gem at the Seattle Public Library sale last October. I know I'm going to end up giving it at least four stars. How do I know this? Because the contents page lists chapter headings as follows:

The Magic of the Horseshoe
Fortune and Luck
The Folk-Lore of Common Salt
The Omens of Sneezing
Days of Good and Evil Omen
Superstitious Dealings with Animals
The Luck of Odd Numbers
Topical Index

(emphasis added by reviewer)

I love library sales.
