There was a published book that did this, some years ago: much of it was in
one font and reasonably competent fantasy-Irishrey based on old stories,
but two pages or a bit more were pure gold -- and in a different font.
They were word-for-word lifted from James Stephens' *Irish Fairy Tales*.

There was a *huge* bibliography at the back of the book, in which Stephens
didn't appear.
