Thomas. The Welsh Fairy Book

Today's free book is The Welsh Fairy Book by W. Jenkyn Thomas with illustrations by Willy Pogany. You can find out more about this book in the Welsh Fairy Book (Thomas) unit of the Myth-Folklore UnTextbook.

For the table of contents, check at the bottom of this post below the image.

The book is available at Sacred Texts Archive and Hathi Trust.

If you are curious about the various sources that Thomas used to compile the collection, you can consult the Preface; he lists many different sources, and emphasizes that "nothing has been inserted that is not genuinely traditionary." If you are curious about Wales and its cultural traditions, you can learn more at Wikipedia: Wales.
