from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A writer of legends.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Every noted place of resort has an Indian legend, and the first thing I did after getting my dinner was to look up the legendist.
So in looking for the boss legendist I struck Judge Lamoreaux, of Dodge county, who had been herewith a party of friends, Mr. Hayes, and Mr. Van Brunt, with all their wives.
Many of these are translated from the French, especially the _Légendes de l'Autre Monde, _ by the well-known legendist, J. Colin de Plancy.
