Celtic Fairy Tales

Joseph JACOBS (1854 - 1916)

Celtic Fairy Tales is a collection of 25 folk and fairy stories collected from Ireland and Scotland. At what I imagine is the Frontispiece, or the dedication page, is the phrase: _SAY THIS /Three times, with your eyes shut_/ Mothuighim boladh an Éireannaigh bhinn bhreugaigh faoi m'fhóidín dúthaigh. _And you will see/What you will see_ A loose translation of this Gaelic phrase is "I sense the smell of a sweet, enchanting Irishman around my dear homeplace."
