Although the Harp, mainly by reason of the introduction of the pianoforte, has not maintained its prestige in the salons of the great, yet it still holds an honoured place in the orchestra, and claims many amateur votaries. Of course there is a professorship of the harp in the principal musical conservatoires; and all the big European and American festivals requisition the instrument either for solo or concerted work. The chief object of this title is to present in a popular form the various evolutions of the harp until its final development by Erard, at the commencement of the nineteenth century, and to furnish a readable account of the leading harpists from mediæval days to our own times; as also to point out the bearing of the harp in the orchestra, and its introduction into the scores of such giants as Wagner, Berlioz, Meyerbeer, and Gounod.

The Victorian fascination with fairyland is reflected in the literature of the period, which includes some of the most imaginative fairy tales ever written. They offer the shortest path to the age's dreams, desires, and wishes. Authors central to the nineteenth-century canon such as Thackeray, Oscar Wilde, Ford Madox Ford, and Rudyard Kipling wrote fairy tales, and authors primarily famous for their work in the genre include George MacDonald, Juliana Ewing, Mary De Morgan, and Andrew Lang. This anthology brings together fourteen of the best stories, by these and other outstanding practitioners, to show the vibrancy and variety of the form and its ability to reflect our deepest concerns. The stories in this selection range from pure whimsy and romance to witty satire and darker, uncanny mystery. Paradox proves central to a form offered equally to children and adults. Fairyland is a dynamic and beguiling place, one that permits the most striking explorations of gender, suffering, love, family, and the travails of identity. Michael Newton's introduction and notes explore the literary marketplace in which these tales appeared, as well as the role they played in contemporary debates on scepticism and belief. The book also includes a selection of original illustrations by some of the masters of the field such as Richard Doyle, Arthur Hughes, and Walter Crane.
