Jacobs, J. (n.d.). More Celtic Fairy Tales. Retrieved from

Preface: For the last time, for the present, I give the children of the British Isles a selection of Fairy Tales once or still existing among them. The story store of Great Britain and Ireland is, I hope, now adequately represented in the four volumes which have won me so many little friends, and of which this is the last. My collections have dealt with the two folk?lore regions of these Isles on different scales. The ?English? region, including Lowland Scotland and running up to the Highland line, is, I fancy, as fully represented in ?English? and ?More English Fairy Tales? as it is ever likely to be. But the Celtic district, including the whole of Ireland and the Gaelic?speaking part of Scotland, still offers a rich harvest to the collector, and will not be exhausted for many a long day. The materials already collected are far richer than those which the ?English? region afford, and it has accordingly been my aim in the two volumes devoted to the Celts, rather to offer specimens of the crop than to exhaust the field.
