Description

Edith Nesbit’s “The Book of Dragons” is a collection of eight children’s stories linked through the common theme of dragons. Edith Nesbit (1858 – 1924) was an English poet and author. She is perhaps best remembered for her children’s literature, publishing more than 60 such books under the name E. Nesbit. She was also a political activist and co-founded the Fabian Society, which had a significant influence on the Labour Party and British politics in general. Contents include: “The Book of Beasts”, “Uncle James, or The Purple Stranger”, “The Deliverers of Their Country”, “The Ice Dragon, or Do as You Are Told”, “The Island of the Nine Whirlpools”, “The Dragon Tamers”, “The Fiery Dragon, or The Heart of Stone and the Heart of Gold”, and “Kind Little Edmund, or The Caves and the Cockatrice”. These fantastical tales would make for perfect bedtime reading material and are deserving of a place on any family bookshelf. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
