Oxford, Shakespeare Head Press, 1939. First edition, first impression. Paperback. A very good copy. Copeland's take on Celtic myth, focussing on the Selkie. Copeland has presented her tale as though for the stage (it's subtitled an Opera with Imaginary Music), with part of the tale set on a ship, part on a shingle beach and the other two parts in a house and farmhouse. A nice take and a Shakespeare Head Press book that seems to be somewhat disappearing from the collective conscience. It's a nice book. A little toned and marked to the wraps but otherwise neat.
