Overview

This early collection of Irish fairytales is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains stories of Changelings, fairies, ghosts and other mystical beings of Irish literature. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in the history of Irish fairytales. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
