If you love fairytales and myths, then you'll love J.F. Campbell's The Celtic Dragon Myth. J.F. Campbell of Islay was a Scottish writer and folklorist who spoke eight languages. His proficiency in languages was put to best use in recording Celtic lore and folktales in their original Gaelic. The genesis of The Celtic Dragon Myth came from Campbell's explorations of the Scottish Highlands, where he constantly heard tales of dragons. He also travelled to Japan, Russia, Sweden among other countries, where he heard similar stories. In the Highlands, Campbell collected some 440 incidents, in 200 different versions, of dragon stories. The belief in sea monsters was still current in Wales, Ireland and Scotland, so Campbell distilled these accounts into The Celtic Dragon Myth as well. This book tells the tale of a Fisherman, his Three Sons, a Mermaid, Giants, Fairies, various sea creatures and more as they battle a mystical dragon. Linguistics junkies are in for a treat, as the story is also presented in Gaelic. There are Gothic drawings accompanying the text and the introduction compares the story to some very similar folk-tales from half a world away. The beauty of books like The Celtic Dragon Myth is that they were written by authors who were close to the source of the original story, during a time when stories were one of the few sources of entertainment people had. Folktales get lost over the centuries as the old ways die out, and books like this preserve culture and wisdom for future generations. This is a must-have for all readers.

The Scottish folklorist J.F. Campbell pieced together the tale of the Celtic Dragon, an intricate oft-told story involving not just dragons but mermaids, giants, and fairies. This story, or portions thereof, is found in many Indo-European folklore traditions, as far away as India. Campbell includes not only his merged narrative, but original Gaelic texts for two of the episodes. This book includes an introduction by George Henderson, the Gaelic text and an English translation of the related tale of Fraoch and the Dragon.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1917 edition. Excerpt: ... (6) Columns for Discount on Purchases and Discount on Notes on the same side of the Cash Book; (c) Columns for Discount on Sales and Cash Sales on the debit side of the Cash Book; (d) Departmental columns in the Sales Book and in the Purchase Book. Controlling Accounts.--The addition of special columns in books of original entry makes possible the keeping of Controlling Accounts. The most common examples of such accounts are Accounts Receivable account and Accounts Payable account. These summary accounts, respectively, displace individual customers' and creditors' accounts in the Ledger. The customers' accounts are then segregated in another book called the Sales Ledger or Customers' Ledger, while the creditors' accounts are kept in the Purchase or Creditors' Ledger. The original Ledger, now much reduced in size, is called the General Ledger. The Trial Balance now refers to the accounts in the General Ledger. It is evident that the task of taking a Trial Balance is greatly simplified because so many fewer accounts are involved. A Schedule of Accounts Receivable is then prepared, consisting of the balances found in the Sales Ledger, and its total must agree with the balance of the Accounts Receivable account shown in the Trial Balance. A similar Schedule of Accounts Payable, made up of all the balances in the Purchase Ledger, is prepared, and it must agree with the balance of the Accounts Payable account of the General Ledger." The Balance Sheet.--In the more elementary part of the text, the student learned how to prepare a Statement of Assets and Liabilities for the purpose of disclosing the net capital of an enterprise. In the present chapter he was shown how to prepare a similar statement, the Balance Sheet. For all practical...
