This magnet pictures an illustration by HJ Ford from the late 1800s. It appeared in The Violet Fairy Tale Book by Andrew Lang accompanying a tale from Swahili, Nunda, Eater of People.

The illustration pictures the sultan’s 7th son refusing to let go of the bird who came to eat his father’s dates.
 

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.
