Boston: Thomas J. Flynn & Company, 1919. First edition. Hardcover. Fine. Item #15822
First edition. 8vo. (xvi), 219pp. Original brown cloth blocked in gilt. Top edge gilt. Frontispiece portrait of author. Basically an exposition of the ancient Irish religious system prior to Christianity (and thereafter as 'fairy lore'). The first book edition of a series of essays that were first published in "The Pilot" under the title "Ancient Irish Paganism", and thus provides a survey of the whole system of ancient Hibernian mythology, not simply the fairy-lore . A fine, bright copy.
