283 pp, 10 3/4" H. Boldly inscribed on half title page: "All good Fortune / James Reynolds", with double underscore and a star beneath. Map of Ireland on endpapers in shades of green and white showing location of the haunted houses. 9 colour plates, including frontispiece (collated), plus 16 full page b&w drawings and 4 smaller b&w drawings. **Please note: at some time in its life, this book has been "married" to a Bonanza dust jacket of the same or similar vintage that fits it perfectly - i.e. this is not the original dust jacket.** "With senses tuned to the cry of the banshee, no people are more intimate with spirits - both horrible and friendly - than the richly imaginative Irish. In this magnificently conceived and superbly executed book, James Reynolds, Irish-born painter, horseman, and traveler, has selected and retold twenty-two folk tales from a collection of more than two hundred gathered during his life in Ireland. He invariably captures the perfect note of eerie, the terrifying, and the comic in these paintings, drawings, and this subtly polished prose; for he is 'ghost-conscious' and 'castle-conscious', as Padraic Colum says, and can describe with the words of a poet what a painter sees. Here are ghosts and demons that have flouished from the tenth to the twentieth century - the horrible, gluttonous ghost of Jason Bannott, the harpies of 'The Ghostly Catch', the madly comic ghosts of the O'Haggerty twins - all the ghosts that midnight fancy shivers to imagine." Spine color has darkened, light browning to edges of text block, minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, a one inch very light red pencil line on blank page 12, a 1/8" strip of browning at top edge of page 6, slight toning in page margins, very small paper slub on chapter title page 89. Dust jacket has light browning on inside, tear (archivally taped) at top of rear panel with soft crease; light discoloration on fore-edge of front flap, at top of spine and under wrinkles in laminate on rear panel, light browming at top edge, tiny closed tear on spine.
