Celtic Fairy TaleseBook - 2013
"Celtic Fairy Tales" is a collection of twenty-six classic stories from British Isles, collected by Joseph Jacobs, and accompanied by the masterful black-and-white illustrations of John D. Batten. It includes such tales as "Connlaand the Fairy Maiden," "Guleesh," "The Field of Boliauns," "The Horned Women," "Conal Yellowclaw," "The Sprightly Tailor," and many more. Heavily influenced by the Brothers Grimm and the romantic nationalism ubiquitous in his contemporary folklorists, Jacobs was responsible for introducing English fairy tales to English children, who had previously chiefly enjoyed those derived from French and German folklore.
