parallels to British Games, but before his death it became apparent that this branch of the subject would almost need a separate treatise, and his death decided me to leave it untouched. I do not underrate its importance, but I am disposed to think that the survey I have given of the British evidence will not be materially shaken by the study of the comparative evidence, which will now be made the easier.
I ought perhaps to add, that the " Memoir " at the end of this volume was read as a paper at the evening meeting of the Folk Lore Society, on March 16th, 1898.
I have again to thank my many kind correspondents for their help in collecting the different versions of the games.
