The book
: Attractive and scarce early edition of At the Back of the North Wind -- a children's book written by Scottish author George MacDonald. It was serialized in the children's magazine Good Words for the Young beginning in 1868 and was published in book form in 1871. It is a fantasy centered on a boy named Diamond and his adventures with the North Wind. Diamond travels together with the mysterious Lady North Wind through the night. The book includes the fairy tale Little Daylight, which has been pulled out as an independent work, or separately, added to other collections of his fairy tales.

The author: George MacDonald (1824-1905) was a Scottish author, poet, and Christian minister known for his pioneering works in the fantasy genre. His writings, including Phantastes, The Princess and the Goblin, and Lilith, have influenced many prominent authors such as C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Madeleine L'Engle.

The illustrator: Arthur Hughes (1832-1915) was a British painter and illustrator associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. His delicate and imaginative illustrations have graced the pages of many classic children's books, including works by George MacDonald and Christina Rossetti.
