About this Item

Copy has very slight shelfwear rubbing, dj has shelfwear rubbing with small corner tip chip lower back, 1/2" closed tear upper back edge, fresh mylar protective dj cover. Contains twenty six Ancient Polsih folktales and fables. The polish folktale evolves from two sources: the troubadour themes entering from the West and the barbaric, early currents flowing from the East. Interesting to both young people and the young at heart, these fanciful tales have eternal themes of unattainable love, good conquering evil, sibling rivalry, punishment for greed, and life happily ever after. Exquisite pen and ink illustrations of Bargielski are delightful in their detail. Scarce publication. 163pp. Desirable!. Bookseller Inventory # 002651

Store Description

I do not have a brick and mortar storefront, listing from home utilizing HomeBase - Nearly all of the books listed are only available single copy, some are new/as new - most are fine or very good - Many unusual/ Collectible/Signed - First Editions/1st printing when possible. I have been a lover and collector of books since early childhood, participating in Metaphysical and Art Bookstore during the 1970's in San Francisco, Ca., Hence, many of the Spiritual, Art and Fantasy/Science Fiction - unusual books are from my private library collection. Art, Beauty, Film, Higher Knowledge - and books that inspire - these continue to come my way and I would love to make them available to others.
