The Book of Beginnings: A Miscellany of the Origins of Superstitions, Customs, Phrases and Sayings by Rudy Brasch
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Dr Rudy Brasch, with his wife Li by his side, has made it his life's work to track down the meanings and origins of words and phrases, myths and customs. Since his early days as a fact-checker for the Encyclopedia Britannica, the Braschs have thought nothing of travelling the world on the trail of the truth. So diligent have they been, that they have even showed where some of our standard reference books have gone astray! This world-renowned expert on the origins of customs, traditions, beliefs, superstitions and popular sayings has almost 40 books to his credit, many of which have been best sellers and have been published in a number of languages.
