The Gnome Compendium

The Gnome Manuscript – Part Three:
Exerts of the Works of J.H.W. Eldermans

The Gnome Manuscript has enchanted many curious people around the world with its mixture of myth, magick and folklore, all captured in the wonderful drawings and handwriting by J.H.W. Eldermans. This third and final instalment of The Gnome Manuscript, The Gnome Compendium – Exerts of the Works of J.H.W. Eldermans, will focus on the miscellaneous writings concerning ‘little people’ by J.H.W. Eldermans.

Where the first part focused more on culture and habits, the second part on magic concerning gnomes, this part will bring you first hand eye witness accounts of people who actually saw or even were in contact with gnomes. We will look to people associated with gnomes, but also to folklore and mythology and the leftovers, the writings that could not fit any category, but deal with gnomes nevertheless. A fascinating study comes to a surprising conclusion.

Wilmar Taal (1969) is a Dutch cultural historian specialized in history of the occult, Dutch folklore, horror fiction and ‘hidden histories’ of The Netherlands. He has authored four books in Dutch and four in English. He is married and lives with his wife and spoilt rotten cat near Amsterdam and part-time on De Veluwe…
