This magnet pictures an illustration by HJ Ford from the late 1800s.  It appeared in The Crimson Fairy Tale Book by Andrew Lang accompanying a Hungarian story, The Story of the Seven Simons.

The illustration pictures Princess Helena of Busan, watching the arrival of a ship. Unbeknownst to her, the ship brings the Simon brothers who kidnap and take her to King Archidej.

Andrew Lang (1844 - 1912) was a Scottish poet, novelist, literary critic, Homeric scholar and historian. He is best known for folklore anthologies, particularly for 12 Fairy Tale Books published from 1889 to 1910.

British artists Henry Justice Ford (1860–1941) and Lancelot Speed (1860-1931) became famous as illustrators of Lang’s Fairy books.
