The original edition of Myth, Ritual andR eligion, published in 1887, has long been out of print. In revising the book I have brought it into line with the ideas expressed in the second part of myM aking of Religion (1898) and have excised certain passages which, as the book first appeared, were inconsistent with its main thesis. In some cases the original passages are retained in notes, to show the nature of the development of the authors opinions. A fragment or two of controversy has been deleted, and chapters xi. and xii., on the religion of the lowest races, have been entirely rewritten, on the strength of more recent or earlier information lately acquired.
(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)
