205 pp, 4to (11" H). Pictorial endpapers. B&w and colour illustrations. A collection of 21 "most unusual folk and fairy tales. The Irish stories go back to the great Sagas, and there are also Celtic tales from Scotland, Wales and Brittany. The characters - kings, elves, peasants, monsters, heroes and lovely ladies - talk to one another the way real people do. The countryside as it was long ago is precisely and powerfully evoked; the stories are full of high adventure and romance, humour and pathos. They take the reader into a world of fantasy which is at the same time intensely real."
