Jacobs, Joseph: The Book of Wonder Voyages (Illustrated). V.1, 12 Nov 2017

After a far-too-long break, I'm uploading the third volume from fairy tale dream team Joseph Jacobs and John D. Batten.

The Book of Wonder Voyages (1919) contains retellings of "The Argonauts", "The Voyage of Maelduin", "Hasan of Bassorah" and "The Journeyings of Thorkill and of Eric the Far-traveled", as well as the usual scholarly notes by Jacobs.

Highly enjoyable, particularly due to Batten's wonderful drawings.

The text is from Wikisource, the illustrations have been cleaned up from a scan at the Internet Archive.

By the same author and illustrator:
Celtic Fairy Tales
Indian Fairy Tales
