416 pp, 8 1/4" H. B&w illustrations. "W.B. Yeats included almost every sort of Irish folk tale in this marvelous compendium of fairy tales and song which he collected and edited for publication in 1892. Here are tales of the chilling wail of the Banshee, whose cry portends death, and of the fish-tailed Merrow, whose beautiful women spurn their green-haired husbands for handsome local fishermen. There are bewitched puddings, lost wishes, fairies, changelings, Leprechauns, ghosts, giants, devils and kings that touch our souls and fire our imagination. Not coincidentally, it is in the weath of symbol within Irish folklore that Yeats found the key to his personal and individual mythology - the muse of his poetic genius." The stories are gathered under the headings: The Fate of the Children of Lir; The Trooping Fairies (The Fairies / Changelings / The Merrow); The Solitary Fairies; Ghosts; Witches, Fairy Doctors; Tyeer-Na-N-Oge; Saints, Priests; The Devil; Giants; Kings Queens, Princesses, Earls, Robbers. Tiny faint in mark at bottom edge of pages 258 & 263, very tiny tear and faint ink mark at bottom edge of pages 259 to 262, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has some very minor edge wrinkling and very minor rubbing.
