I remember pawing through these old books in my father's library about mysterious creatures of legend, and discovering the chapter on mermaids. The idea that Disney's sweet and lovely Ariel came from a myth of evil fish-women seducing sailors then dragging them down to the depths of the ocean to devour them was a bit alarming. But still interesting! Here's a sketch of one such evil mermaid.
