21 Squire, Charles MYTHOLOGY OF THE CELTIC PEOPLE
Bracken Books 1998 0091850436 / 9780091850432 Paperback Near Fine 
A tight clean softcover, no markings throughout: Now back in print for the first time in many years is one of the most comprehensive studies of Celtic mythology, legend, and poetry ever written, presenting the entire enthralling panorama of the mythical and legendary traditions of the ancient Gaelic and British Celts. Here, in clear, compact, readable form are stories of all the chief characters of Celtic myth: the Gaelic gods and the giants they battled; the "Champions of the Red Branchy" of Ulster, heroes of the great "Irish Iliad;" Finn and the Fenians; and the gods and heroes of the ancient Britons, down through the great deeds of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. You will find the original adventures of such great heroes and heroines as Cuchulainn, Diarmait, Conan, Ossian, Emer, Dierdre, Rhiannon, and Bran. These legendary figures and their epics of magic and might greatly influenced the writings of such authors as Lord Dunsany, E.R. Eddison, J.R.R. Tolkien, Kenneth Morris, and Robert E. Howard.
