Here is a scarce and highly collectable vintage hardback copy of Abbey Lubbers, Banshees & Boggarts. Arranged in encyclopaedia format, this is a shorter version of Katharine Briggs classic Dictionary of Fairies, but is beautifully illustrated with colour plates and 71 black and white drawings (see photos). There are also more anecdotes and tales about the fairies than in the dictionary. This is a first edition hardback published by Kestrel Books, London.

Everything you need to know about Changelings; Pixies; Leprecauns; Lady of the Lake; King Herla; Habetrots and many more.

In good condition, with clean and tightly bound pages. Has some tanning and spotting to the closed outside edges. With one fold plus some mild creasing to the top corners. There is no writing, marks or inscriptions.

In the original unclipped dust wrapper. With some creasing to the corners and spine ends (see final close-up photo). Otherwise clean, bright and smart with illustration also on the back.

Your vintage copy of Abbey Lubbers, Banshees and Boggarts will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message if desired.

Each book H 24 cm x W 16 cm, 159 pages, 0.5 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. With the exception of a small number of countries.

* If you would prefer for your books not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the full packaging please add a note to the order.
