Folk Tales Of Britain Six Volumes by Katharine Briggs
Folk Tales of Britain: Legends. This 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. Volume 1. Artist. Hannah Firmin; Volume 2. Artist. Peter Firmin; Volume 3. Artist. Clare Melinsky.
Folk Tales of Britain: Narratives. 'Every nation needs its own collection of folk tales, and this is the fullest and most authoritative we have. To open it anywhere is to sink a shaft into the memory of a people and all that they know ' With these words Philip Pullman introduces a new Folio Society edition of a pioneering publication. Katharine M. Briggs's Folk Tales of Britain: Narratives is an unrivalled collection of stories, from local traditions and historical legends to shaggy dog stories and fairy tales. A cornucopia of storytelling, it is an essential part of both Britain's heritage and the literary heritage of the world. Volume 1. Artist: Hannah Firmin; Volume 2. Peter Firmin; Volume 3. Clare Melinsky.
