94 pp, 9 3/8" H. B&w illustrations. "In this collection, (Zacharias) Topelius (1818-1898) reveals to us the wide horizons of his fantasy and his deep concern with the ethical principles which guide a sound life, whether it be personal or public. In 'Tikka The Tailor', (he) plays havoc with personal and community class prejudice. 'Little Genius' reveals the immortal spirit of creativity through a series of comic-tragic episodes. In 'Stars On The Snow' our hearts are moved by the absurd ugliness of race prejudice, our minds uplifted by the beauty of the Finnish Winter. 'Where Stories Grow' pokes delicious fun at class snobbishness and ignorance contrasted with the trusting, searching naivete of a young lad. 'The Ice King' (another name for Sampo the Little Lapp) has become one of the most precious tales of Scandinavia. The Arctic landscape with its fierce inhabitants fills the reader with a chill of excitement. 'Butterfly Lover' tells in seemingly simple terms the heartbreak of real and faithful love versus vanity and infidelity. 'Adventures of Sikku' presents a melodramatic description of Cossack warfare and supernatural intervention. 'Lisalill' is a sensitive tale of mystical nature which has deep roots in modern psychiatry, with special reference to Jungian interpretation of dreams. 'Fisherman's Dream', a comic tale, shows the hazards of greed." Very light edge wear to boards. Dust jacket has light edge wear, a few tiny to small edge tears (archivally taped) - one with soft crease, light rubbing and a few tiny scuffs, light browning on spine and flap-folds, very light browning on rear panel.
