About This Text
This text was prepared by Lisa Ripperton, using
as copytext, Celtic Fairy Tales, selected and edited by
Joseph Jacobs and illustrated by John D. Batten,
London: David Nutt, 1892.
Scanning and editing of the text was performed by Phillip Brown
who publishes many related books on his
Celtic Folklore and
Fairy Tales and Fables
web sites. With his kind permission, I used his text as the basis for my own.
Since this book was first published before 1923, it is in the public domain
in the United States. By
U.S. law, it entered the public domain 75 years after
its first publication.
Numerous black and white illustrations by John D. Batten are included in the text.
