Overview

First published in 1848. According to Wikipedia: "The Mabinogion is the title given to a collection of eleven prose stories collated from medieval Welsh manuscripts. The tales draw on pre-Christian Celtic mythology, international folktale motifs, and early medieval historical traditions. While some details may hark back to older Iron Age traditions, each of these tales is the product of a highly developed medieval Welsh narrative tradition, both oral and written. Lady Charlotte Guest in the mid 19th century was the first to publish English translations of the collection, popularising the name "Mabinogion" at the same time.”

This Nook edition is not what you are expecting. The Publisher, qasim idrees, is a Pakistani Computer software company. He/it has connected this Nook edition as being translated by Jeffrey Gantz. That is incorrect. This is in fact the Lady Charlotte Guest translation which is Public Domain. Please avoid this publisher as he/it seems to be scamming buyers and Barns & Noble with his fake publications. Rated 1 star because it requires it but it deserves NO STARS.
