1888. Waite selected, arranged and wrote an introduction for this volume of fairy poetry. It opens with a bird's-eye prospect of the fairy country, followed by a prelude that implores the return of its inhabitants into the world of humanity. The first division includes a particular account of the court, country, and people of Fairyland, of its temples, palaces, and festivals. The second division contains the Chronicles of Fairyland and the third division is devoted to those wonderful and mystical travels or spiritual pilgrimages into Fairyland. The section entitled Men and Fairies is comprised of poems and romances in which the different orders of elfin spirits enter into communication with man and mingle in the life of earth, dispensing supernatural benevolence, or working unheard-of woe, according to their various dispositions.
