The Book of Fairy Poetry illustrated by Warwick Goble

The Book of Fairy Poetry is a compilation of poems that took compiler Dora Owen several years to complete. Published in 1920, this anthology is divided into three parts: fairy stories, fairy songs, dances, and talk, and fairy lore. Each is filled with fantastic literary creations from the likes of J.R.R. Tolkien, William Shakespeare, Robert Louis Stevenson, John Milton, and William Butler Yeats, as well as traditional pieces. Even Mrs. Owen herself included her own original poem, titled Children, Children, Don't Forget. The book was illustrated by Warwick Goble (1862 - 1943), who was a Victorian illustrator of children's books and was specialized in fairy tales and exotic scenes from Japan, India and Arabia.
