by (Magical worlds) Froud, Brian and Alan Lee.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket with slight toning to the spine. This imaginative faery field guide features pencil drawings and watercolors of mythical creatures, as well as brief descriptions of their origins and powers; it draws on a long history of phantasmagoric iconography in the generally occidental vein. Besides faeries, the authors also include renderings of many other denizens of faery land-goblins, dwarves and leprechauns, for instance-as well as stranger breeds, such as the Fachan, a one-armed, one-legged oddity from the Scotland highlands and the Jack-in-Irons, a ""Yorkshire giant who haunts lonely roads."
