Illustrated with eight coloured plates by the author’s daughter-in-law. Lily Margaret Graham Parry studied in London at the Slade School of Art, where she met Robert Gregory, son of Lady Gregory. She illustrated three of her mother-in-law’s books: The Kiltartan Wonder Book, The Blessed Trinity and The Golden Apple.
Lady Gregory is forever linked by her influence on the modern Irish theatre, as well as her love and inspiration for Barony of Kiltartan, in County Galway, in which the author lived at Coole Park.
