Item Description: Folio Society, London, England, 2011. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. The Folio Society published this set of three hardback volumes in 2011. The three books and their slip case are in Brand New condition, and will be sent to you in the publisher's undisturbed shrink-wrapping. The three volumes are bound in RED buckram. Each volume contains a colour frontispiece and 28 black & white illustrations. Volume I was illustrated by Hannah Firmin; Volume II by Peter Firmin; and Volume III by Clare Melinsky. In total there are 1,792 pages. The size of each volume in inches is: 9.5 x 6.25. Note that this set weighs 3.80 kg. Introduction by Kevin Crossley-Holland. The result of a lifetime's work, Katharine M. Briggs Folk Tales of Britain is an extraordinary compendium, the most complete in existence, of the folk-story heritage of Great Britain. Part one of her magnum opus, published earlier by The Folio Society as Folk Tales of Britain: Narratives contains stories which people knew were fiction. This new three-volume collection contains over 1,000 Legends, that is, stories once believed to be true. Thus, actual places, people and historical events appear frequently in these tales, anchoring even the most bizarre to the real world, from the many drowned villages whose bells can be heard ringing as the tide moves them, to the brave deeds of a 12-year-old girl during the Monmouth Rebellion, who killed a soldier with his own sword to protect her mother. A few of these tales have become famous in other forms such as The Pied Piper of the Isle of Wight or Whittington and His Cat. Others have faded from memory, but seem to have originated in a real life incident, like The One-Horse Farmers at a Christening, in which an evangelical mission arrives in the fens of Cambridgeshire. The preacher suspects the Fenlanders are making game of him because every single child who comes for baptism is named Noah. It turns out that the children were all born at the time of a flood and were, naturally, all named Noah. The preacher so far forgets himself as to exclaim, Well, I'll be damned. Many supernatural creatures haunt the books' pages, from the skinless Nuckelavee to the Somerset spirit Blue Burches exorcised by two parsons. Other tales have a more homely explanation - the Sea-Worm of Solway who was stranded on the beach and bellowed and moaned was most likely a whale. As with all our sales of books within the UK, we only ever charge a flat standard delivery cost of £3.35. Bookseller Inventory # 002635
