I'm not sure what the Dover edition could have been. Bear in mind that the
artist Jim Fitzpatrick did a kind of graphic-novel treatment of _The Book of
Invasions_ which was very popular in the '80's [though not terribly faithful to
the original]. Lady Gregory's _Gods and Fighting Men_ is mostly about Fionn Mac
Cumhail; she does deal with some of the episodes in the LGÉ (the parts about
the Tuatha Dé Danann and Lugh), but mostly uses other texts [like _Cath Maige
Tuired_] as her source.
What do you need to know about it?
