The only edition available that includes all 40 of Warwick Goble's original watercolor-over-ink illustrations, this hardcover collectible is a faithfull facsimile of the classic 1910 Macmillan compilation of Japanese fairy tales. Goble was fascinated by Japanese art, so the Golden Age master is the perfect match for the 38 stories that were collected by Grace James, a noted folklorist and author best known for the John and Mary series. Contents include the title tale as well as "The Good Thunder," "The Star Lovers," "The Wind in the Pine Tree," "The Beautiful Dancer of Yedo," and many others.
