Don | 2 comments Try "The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns and Fairies." The author, the Rev. Robert Kirk (1644-92) was supposedly stolen by fairies.

The Fairy Census alas is not yet in print, but can be read here (officially from the compilers)

It has a huge range of contemporary accounts.
It picks up the baton from Seeing Fairies: From the Lost Archives of the Fairy Investigation Society, Authentic Reports of Fairies in Modern Times by Marjorie T Johnson.

Also for those interested in the diversity of faerie and other folkloric entities and creatures in Britain and Ireland, may I recommend my own Strange Lands: A Field Guide to the Celtic Otherworld
