From the Back Cover:

The two volumes of Celtic folk tales collected by the leading British folklorist Joseph Jacobs (1854–1916) introduced the children of the world to the special vision and color, the unique magic of the Celtic folk imagination.
The 26 stories of "Guleesh," "The Horned Women," "King O'Toole and His Goose," "The Sea-Maiden," "The Shee An Gannon and the Gruagach Gaire," "The Lad with the Goat-Skin," the legendary "Dierdre," "Beth Gellert," and the other wonderful characters, the curses and hexes, the broken promises and granted wishes are accompanied by eight full-page plates, 37 drawings, and decorated capitals and endpieces that help make this book the charming one that generations of youngsters have proclaimed it to be.
