About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for IRISH FAIRY TALES by [Rackham, illus.] Stephens James.

Description:

First edition, first issue. With 16 full page colour plates and numerous black and white illustrations in the text by Arthur Rackham. 8vo, original publisher s green cloth lettered and pictorially decorated in gilt. x, 318, ad. A handsome copy, clean and well preserved, just a trifle aged. SCARCE FIRST EDITION. Rackham s friend James Stephens wrote his collection of Irish Stories drawing from a rich oral tradition and also from the original Gaelic texts. He succeeded in presenting the old tales in a poetic and accessible form for the general modern reader. The collection is an excellent introduction to traditional Irish Fairy Stories and includes: The Story of Tuan Mac Cairill, The Boyhood of Fionn, The Carl of the Drab Coat, Mongan s Frenzy, and many more. Rackham brought forth another collection of dazzling and imaginative illustrations. The Dublin Independent wrote a warm review of Rackham s Irish Fairy Tales: "We read English tales with appreciation because pictures have familiarized us with English imagery. A Fenian tale lacks imagery because we have no art to give it colour and shape to what are presently only names. Some of Mr. Rackham s pictures are pure poems - they set you dreaming.".
