The Allies' Fairy Book contains a selection of traditional fairy tales from the participants of World War One - compiled and edited by Edmund Gosse in 1916. It includes the tales of: 'Jack the Giant Killer' (English); 'The Battle of the Birds' (Scottish); 'Lludd and Llevelys' (Welsh); 'The Sleeping Beauty (French); 'Cesarino and the Dragon' (Italian); 'What came of picking flowers' (Portuguese); 'The Tongue-Cut Sparrow' (Japanese); 'Frost' (Russian); 'The Golden Apple-Tree and the Nine Peahens' (Serbian), and many more. The book further contains a series of dazzling colour and black-and-white illustrations - by a master of the craft; Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration (which encompassed the years from 1850 until the start of the First World War), Rackham's artistry is quite simply, unparalleled. Throughout his career, he developed a unique style, combining haunting humour with dream-like romance. Presented alongside the text of the 'Allied Fairy Book', his illustrations further refine and elucidate Gosse's carefully compiled anthology. Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of Illustration' in children's literature - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children's stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.
