THE CHILDREN'S ILLUSTRATED CLASSICS
THE PRINCESS AND THE GOBLIN
by George MacDonald
With eight illustrations in full colour and fourteen line drawings in the text by CHARLES FOLKARD
George McDonald as a writer of modern fairy-stories deserves to be better known. He had a love of country things and country ways which found their way into his delightful books. The Princess and the Goblin (published first) and The Princess and Curdie (which followed eleven years later) are certainly two of his very best tales for children, written with a complete understanding of the young audience for which they were fashioned.
The author had eleven children, and the family lived for some time in London near the Thames at Hammersmith. The house, called The Retreat, was also at a later date the home of the poet William Morris, when it became widely known as Kelmscott House. The house can still be seen today.
