London Chatto & Windus 1972 0701104872 / 9780701104870 First Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good+ Peter Warner. 
160 pp, 8vo (8" H). B&w illustrations. "The usual pattern of Katy's summer holiday on the island of Hrossay is disrupted by more than the invasion of her cousins Varen, Barney and Randy MacGillan, or even the last-minute arrival of the Ellis family. Strange forces enter the household with the spinning-wheel which Varen brings home: 'bewitched', Peter Harcus has said of it, but nothing of the wheel's potential, no word of warning against those who share its secret. R.E. Jackson set her most imaginative novel yet on a legend-steeped island in Orkney, where a trick of light on the sea can reveal the dark shape of human being beneath its surface, and can transform an ordinary girl in the street into a mermaid in her prime; where the powerful influence of an old wooden spinning-wheel becomes increasingly evident, and the dividing-line between fact and fancy ever harder to perceive." Very minor edge wear. Dust jacket is price clipped, very minor wrinkling at top of spine.

560 pp, 8vo (8 1/4" H). B&w illustrations. First Avenel reprinting of the 1878 G. Bell edition. "Kelpies, Korrigans, Pixies and Peries, Deeves, Brownies, and Bugaboos - these are just a few of the fantastic figures you will encounter in this unique collection of fairy mythology. Gnomes, faries, and elves of every imaginable size, shape, color, and demeanor spring to life in this marvelously illustrated guide to the fairy realm. Just one glance at the extensive table of contents reveals the scope and variety of fairy folklore explored here - from Persian and Arabian romance to the mythology of Scandinavia, England, France, Germany, and Switzerland. In addition, the author includes sections dealing with the more obscure fairy folkore and tradition of Greece, Spain, Italy, Africa, and the Middle East. Indeed, (he) has left no stone unturned in accomplishing the task he set for himself: 'to collect, arrange and classify and give under one point of view the various ideas and legends respecting fairies and similar beings of the popular creed.' Taken from a variety of sources of popular myth and legend, (it) forms a rich compendium of the superstitions surrounding those enchanting lesser deities, 'the little people'. Not only does (he) explore every type and species, but he also traces resemblances and similarities among the fairy traditions of different countries. For instance, did you know that the Nis (Scandianavia), the Kobold (Germany), and the Goblin (England) are all names for one species, which appears in Scotland under the name of Brownie, and that the Brownie is a person of small stature and wrinkled visage, is covered with short and curly brown hair, and wears a brown mantle and hood? In addition, Keightley discusses the fairy tradition as it appears in major works of English literature, from the Middle Age epic of 'Beowulf' and Chaucer's 'Canterbury Tales' to Spencer's 'The Faerie Queene' and Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'." Light wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, two repaired small tears at top of spine.

Their hearts sink at the coming weeks of boredom, but as the old house gradually gives up its secrets their familiar world starts to fracture, giving access to a magical and corrupt land destroyed thousands of years ago. Outside on the moors a standing stone watches the house, but not always from the same place; inside, a sinister statue comes to malevolent life. At night, strange creatures seek to enter. And as their lives are invaded by the fantastical, Ferm finds herself courted by the enigmatic wanderer, Ragginbone, and the sinister art-dealer, Javier Holt, for they know that she has the Gift: a unique and powerful talent for magic not seen for ten thousand years. Hidden in the house is a talisman which has been sought by the forces of good and evil for millennia. A talisman so powerful that it can be used to shape time, to destroy civilizations, perhaps even conquer death. And only someone possessed of the Gift can use it. As events race to a desperate and fatal climax, Fern and Will must decide who, and what, to believe."
