Type: COLLECTION
Language: English
Note: "This year's Christmas book by Joseph Jacobs, the antiquarian and folk-lorist" -- Chi. Tribune 1896-08-05 p6 Contents
  • The Argonauts
  • The Voyage of Maelduin
  • Hasan of Bassorah
  • The Journeyings of Thorkill and of Eric the Far-Traveled
Jacobs explains in the original preface that Hasan's Voyage to the Islands of Wak-Wak represents Arabia, rather than Sindbad, because the latter belongs in the Arabian "Nights" where Batten has already illustrated him.   As "the greatest voyagers of all, the Norsemen, seemingly found little temptation to let their imagination play about their business concerns, in order to obtain a representative Wonder Voyage [...] I have had to combine two minor sagas which can be classed under that genre."
Synopsis: "A collection of stories of imaginary voyages from Greek, Irish, Arab, and Norse folklore." -- summary, one WorldCat library records
