Nesbit, Edith: ALL the Dragons (Collection, Illus). v2. 12 Sep 2016

ALL the Dragons
by Edith Nesbit (1858–1924)
With the original illustrations by Harold R. Millar (1869–1940)
AND a glossary for young readers.

First published in 1899, 1905, 1912, 1925.
The text and illustrations of this book are in the public domain in countries where copyright is “Life+70” or less. Additional material and cover design are released under the Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 4.0 License.

---------
Edith Nesbit Bland, English author and poet, published approximately 40 books for children under the name of E. Nesbit. Her innovative body of work combined realistic, contemporary children in real-world settings with magical objects and adventures; and influenced many subsequent fantasy writers.

Here is an entertaining collection of Nesbit stories about dragons — those fascinating creatures of myth and legend. The people of these stories – whether they are timid or adventurous, clever or inept, well-meaning or evil, or simply curious – all find themselves caught up in unexpected adventures when they actually meet Real Live Dragons!

Contents:
Spoiler:
(The first eight stories comprise The Book of Dragons, 1900)
1- The Book of Beasts
2- Uncle James
3- The Deliverers of Their Country
4- The Ice Dragon
5- The Isle of the Nine Whirlpools
6- The Dragon Tamers
7- The Fiery Dragon
8- Kind Little Edmund
9- Billy the King -- (from Oswald Bastable and Others, 1905)
10- Justnowland -- (from The Magic World, 1912)
11- The Last of the Dragons -- (from Wikisource; no source stated, initial publication date given as 1925)

----------
Text and images obtained from several sources (see editing notes in the book). Punctuation has been formatted; missing italics and some text fragments recovered. A glossary has been added, annotating some terms no longer in general use, or in use primarily in the UK. Chapter heads are cross-linked to dynamic Table of Contents; image captions cross-linked to List of Illustrations. Embedded fonts for titling, etc. (hope you like my custom font for dragon decorations).

Offered in a Drop-caps version, and an Up-caps version if your reader is shy about wrapping text. Images are mid-resolution based on 900x1200px. And the cover is very... green.

Have fun chasing dragons!

EDIT: Uploaded version 2, with 25 additional illustrations from the magazine publications, and expanded glossary. Previous downloads: 231.

The dropcaps look beautiful on both my kobos (H2O and glo HD).

Thank you again.

Thanks to you both for your feedback. So happy these elements please you.

The graphics work on this project was a *lot* of fun! Accidental effects turned into final images.

I just uploaded version 2. It has a new set of illustrations, with 25 additional illustrations from the original magazine publications from The Strand Magazine in 1899. I have also expanded the glossary, corrected some typo's, and tweaked formatting a bit.

Wouldn't you like to tickle a dragon under his chin?
