Blandford & Cassell, London, 1994. First edition. Book condition: very good. Slight bumping to corners and a light indentation to front board. Dust jacket condition: very good. Jacket unclipped and just a little of shelf wear around the edges. This book gathers together a range of tales from Ireland, Wales, Brittany and England. Each one is representative of the Celtic tradition of story-telling and legend, showing both beauty and savagery within the stories as well as their spirituality and sensuous qualities. R. J. Stewart's text retains the true spirit of Celtic myths and avoids the popular tendency to romanticize them, which can dilute the uncompromising nature of much Celtic tradition. The book is illustrated with outstanding colour paintings by Courtney Davis, specially commissioned for this book, and line drawings of famous artefacts and sites by Sarah Lever.
