Books about the Cottingley Fairies. 1914 - Princess Mary's Gift Book from which it is alleged Elsie took inspiration for her fairy drawings.

The Cottingley Fairies appear in a series of five photographs taken by Elsie Wright (1901–1988) and Frances Griffiths (1907–1986), two young cousins who lived in Cottingley, near Bradford in England.

Unfortunately, she is vague about the actual fairies she is supposed to have seen. So it's hard to tell what she saw, even reading her own work. She even says she wishes someone had asked her for more details at the time, because she just observed them, without really noticing particulars, or even the time of day. So it's hard to tell what she saw, even reading her own work

The Cottingley Fairies appeared in a series of photographs taken by two young .

The Cottingley Fairies appeared in a series of photographs taken by two young cousins and came to the attention of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. He later started writing a book on them but never finished it. Public reaction ranged from disbelief to a cult following. Interest in the fairies waned after 1921 and both girls lived abroad for some time. In 1917 nine-year-old Frances Griffiths and her mother had arrived back from South Africa and were staying with Frances' aunt, Elsie Wright's mother. Elsie was 16 years old at the time and the two young girls often played beside a stream.

In 1918, Elsie Wright and her cousin Frances Griffith photographed fairies in their garden, in the small village of Cottingley .

In 1918, Elsie Wright and her cousin Frances Griffith photographed fairies in their garden, in the small village of Cottingley (Yorkshire). Without expecting it, many people paid attention-including renowned writer and spiritualist Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This is the story, narrated by Elsie herself, of the true events that led to the Cottingley Fairies becoming a international phenomenon. The Cottingley Fairies' with words and illustrations by Ana Sender is a picture book about 2 English girls who claimed to have seen fairies and have the photos to prove it. In 1918, two girls, Elsie Wright and her cousin Frances Griffith, liked playing outdoors.

The Cottingley fairies was a hoax which demonstrates that being a famous novelist doesn't prevent you from being credulous. In short, Elsie Wright, a wacky art college student, persuaded her ten-year-old cousin, Frances Griffiths, to pose with some cardboard cut-out fairies for a photo in 1917. Later photographs were taken using a double exposure technique to super-impose fairy-like creatures onto photographs. Five photographs were taken in total.

Cottingley Photo No. 2. Image: Frances Griffith . Two years after the photos were taken, Mom attended a meeting of Bradford’s Theosophical Society on fairies and showed the two photographs to the speaker near the end of the meeting. Christine Lynch, Frances’ daughter, had one of Frances’ cameras and her copies of the photographs appraised, and got a price of £25,000 and £30,000. A few months later, Frances’ memoirs, Reflections on the Cottingley Fairies were published, containing increasingly bitter correspondence between Frances and Elsie from 1917 to 1983.

I thought I knew the story of the Cottingly Faeries until I read this little book. I must admit, I also have the movie "Fairy Tale" and have really enjoyed it, but it's sad that it's apparently so far from the Truth. I'm so glad I got this book, as it rings Truth to me. Thank goodness Frances finally gets to tell her story, the REAL STORY of her own profound experiences as a child. These were experiences that she enjoyed innocently and others took advantage of. There really is a noticeable difference in quality between the phony pictures and the authentic picture "Fairy Bower". I think it's very telling that even though they've admitted that most of the photos were faked, Frances always, always said that the 5th photo ("Fairy Bower") was authentic and does actually show the real phenomena of nature spirits. She also gives insights into her recurring sightings and interactions with the nature spirits. Frances apparently maintained her Truth throughout her life, never wavering. This is a good book for anyone with an open mind, or who have had their own relatable experiences.

Christine Lynch is a sweet lady and it was a pleasure to correspond with her in getting the book sent to America. The book is a wonderful read and gives a better first-hand feel for the actual story. I'm glad I have it in my collection.

Written by the daughter of Frances Griffith,this book tells more secrets of the lives of these young people,a look into their private lives,as only a daughter could describe firsthand.A must for the historian or collector on the cottingley hoax.It belongs along side Doyle,Gardner & Cooper to complete the fasinating story.

Written by France with additional information from her daughter, it is a sweet account of the events as they happened.

Anyone seriously interested in these events needs to read this book. The story straight from one of the main participants who has much to say about the reality behind the their claims. Additional information by her daughter fills out the story and provides much more insight into the history of Frances Griffiths after the incident. Those who have read about the debunking of the photos only have half the story. This is the rest.
