The legends were first printed during 1837 as a regular series in the magazine Bentley's Miscellany and later in New Monthly Magazine.[1] They proved immensely popular and were compiled into books published in 1840, 1842 and 1847 by Richard Bentley. They remained popular during the 19th century, when they ran through many editions. They were illustrated by artists including John Leech, George Cruikshank, John Tenniel, and Arthur Rackham (1898 edition).[2]


As a priest of the Chapel Royal, with a private income,[3] Barham was not troubled with strenuous duties and he had ample time to read and compose stories. Although based on real legends and mythology, chiefly Kentish,[4] such as the "hand of glory", they are mostly deliberately humorous parodies or pastiches of medieval folklore and poetry.


Illustrations by George Cruikshank, John Leech and John Tenniel. (Large 8vo) 9x6, rebound in full blue crushed morocco, inlaid figures from the legends on front, rear and spine (4 characters and 4 items on each board, 5 items on spine), spine gilt lettered, tall raised bands, gilt rolled board edges, gilt design on dentelles, silk endleaves, all edges gilt.
