- About My Library
- My library is focused on folklore and mythology, with an emphasis on faerylore. I also collect rare and antique books concerning folklore, mythology, and faeries. A few highlights of my antique collection include a first edition of Yeats' Fairy and Folkltales of the Irish Peasantry as well as a first edition of The Celtic Twilight, a first edition presentation copy of Wirt Sikes' British Goblins, four first editions of Cicely Mary Barker's flower fairy books and first editions of The Grey Fairy Book and The Yellow Fairy Book by Andrew Lang. I also have a copy of Christina Rossetti's poems signed and annotated by Cicely Mary Barker and a complete collection of the Strand magazines chronicling the Cottingley Fairy events.
- About Me
- I'm a 24-year-old editor, with a degree in writing, literature, and publishing. Books and the English language are my greatest passions in life. I also enjoy cooking, farmers markets, knitting, and Star Trek.
