Puck of Pook's Hill

An illustration from the story "Old Men at Pevensey" from the first printing of Rudyard Kipling's 1906 fantasy book Puck of Pook's Hill, featuring the legend "He drew his dagger on Jehan, who threw him down the stairway".

The book consists of a number of stories, all narrated to two children living near Burwash, in the area of Kipling's own house Bateman's, by people magically plucked out of history by the elf Puck, or told by Puck himself.
