London, Kegan Paul, Trench & Trubner, 1893. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. The fifth book (in English translation) from Jonas Lie. Lie captures the essence of Scandanavian folklore, with a focus on the slightly more sinister side of the supernatural elements, such as gnomes and elves. The book collects eleven short pieces and features twelve illustrations from Housman. One of the stories, The Huldrefish, concerns sea creatures, and is reminiscent of many later tales. Perhaps not quite the same sense of weirdness as exhibited in the classics of the subsequent couple of decades, but certainly conjouring a sense perhaps perculiar to Scandanavian folk tales. An excellent book, that deserves attention. Very good condition; some markings to the upper board, spine a little dulled, tips bumped, slight lean and an owner's inscription to the front endpaper. Illustrations by Laurence Housman [6586, Hyraxia Books].
