21908 Parabaik Myanmar Burma Tattoo Pattern Book

Parabaik Myanmar Burma Folding Tattoo Pattern Book, Leporello double sided 72", 27 images.

Parabaiks like these were produced as sample tattoo books. From the British museum, manuscript similar to ours: "The manuscript is a digest of tattoo designs for a potential client to choose from, and would have been used by the tattooer to advertise his range of work." The traditional tattoos had religious or magical powers and both protected the wearer and gave him strength.

This book has 27 different tattoos, black outlined coloured drawings surrounded by text, some on double spreads and some single pages: elephants brandishing swords, goddesses riding tigers, magical birds, and creatures bearing magic squares and circles, fish, chicken headed snakes, and circles of lizards and many animals with human or goddess heads.

Yes, this is a strange book for a children's site, but in fact it was sold to us as a "Victorian colouring book" (true!)

20075 The Crimson Fairy Book, A. Lang, H. J. Ford Illus, Longmans 1st printing

The Crimson Fairy Book. Longmans 1st.

In an amusing preface, the editor points out yet again that he is not the creator of these stories, as most of his readers seem to think. "Like nature, popular tales are too vast to be the creation of a single modern mind." His wife, Mrs. Lang, actually wrote the adaptations for most of them so his role has been in ferreting out the interesting and varied world wide tales of this collection.

21433 Venturesome Voyage by Allen

Venturesome Voyage.

Twin orphans, brother and sister, cast adrift, sail with a shipment of humanitarian aid to Greece during the Greek War of Independence from the Ottoman Turks (1821-1832). Endless adventures ensue, the brother trying to care for his sister, and the sister always thinking up a new exciting plan (unlike the self-consciously "spunky" heroines of recent YA fiction, Phoebe is the real thing) Though they begin with the idea of grand adventure, their gradual understanding of the complexity of the situation and the suffering of the refugees, as well as the limits of their ability to care for themselves are handled truthfully, always from a child's point of view. An amusing and ultimately very touching book. SIGNED and BRIEFLY INSCRIBED by the author.
Note: This book has been SOLD.
