Andrew Lang's "Color" Fairy Books
     

Andrew Lang edited and published twelve folk and fairy tale books -- the "Color" Fairy Book series -- beginning with "The Blue Fairy Book" in 1889 and finishing with the "The Lilac Fairy Book" in 1910.

These stories were collected from all over the world. He had originally intended to do only one book, but popular demand coaxed him into releasing more. He continued to publish the books until he felt he had exhausted his supply and any more books would be merely replicating the stories he had already released, with only local regional details differing between them. The collections were specifically intended for children, and consequently edited for that end.

When Andrew began publishing these books there were almost no fairy tale books in circulation (that was, in fact, his primary reason for releasing his first book). The series proved of great influence in children’s literature, and inspired a host of imitators. The series also proved to be an inspiration to J.R. Tolken and his Middle-Earth collection of novels.

"Volume 2 Folk and Fairy Tales", collected by Joseph Jacobs





Over a century ago, in 1890, Joseph Jacobs began collecting the first known set of English fairy tales, in response to a then popular feeling that "there were no English fairy tales," and thereby contributing heavily to the field of fairy tale studies. By 1916 he had published six folk and fairy tale books: Joseph Jacob’s English Folk and Fairy Tales, More English Folk and Fairy Tales, Indian Folk and Fairy Tales, Celtic Folk and Fairy Tales, More Celtic Folk and Fairy Tales, and European Folk and Fairy Tales. Each of the four types published (English, Celtic, European, and Indian) dealt with the folk and fairy tales indigent to the local populations of those areas, as told by those living there. A true resource for those interested in the spread of folk and fairy tales, each book contains extensive notes about the stories as well as cross-references between the stories, linking their style and tracing possible paths by which they spread from one area to another.

"Irish Fairy and Folk Tales" was collected and edited by the renowned Nobel Prize-winning Irish poet, playwright, and essayist who spearheaded the Celtic Renaissance in the early 20th century, William Butler Yeats. The sixty-five tales and poems in this delightful collection uniquely capture the rich heritage of the Celtic imagination. Filled with legends of village ghosts, fairies, mermaids, demons, witches, priests, and saints, these stories are enchanting and entertaining, and evoke both tender pathos and lighthearted mirth.

As Yeats says his introduction, "These folk-tales are full of simplicity and musical occurrences, for they are the literature of a class for whom every incident in the old rut of birth, love, pain, and death has cropped up unchanged for centuries: who have steeped everything in the heart: to whom everything is a symbol."

Highly rated by both literary critics and common-man readers, this book is highly recommended to all interested in fairy and folk tales, especially those interested Irish traditions and folklore. Includes eight pages of notes on the stories and twelve illustrations by James Torrance, from the 1907 edition.

"James Stephens’ “Irish Fairy Tales”, with Arthur Rackham’s twenty-five original illustrations, twelve in full-color, brings to vivid life the exciting days of ancient Ireland when Conn of the Hundred Battles was High King at Tara and the great Fionn mac Uail led the Fianna against the enemies of Ireland.

Fionn mac Uail was a hunter-warrior of Irish mythology (appearing also in the mythologies of Scotland and the Isle of Man). The stories of Fionn and his followers, the Fianna, form the Fenian cycle or Fiannaidheacht.

Fionn was the son of Uail, leader of the Fianna, and Muirne, daughter of the druid Tadg mac Nuadat who lived on the hill of Almu in County Kildare. From this beginning Fionn becomes the greatest warrior in Irish mythology.

Filled with adventure, humor, magic, and romance, Irish Fairy Tales was hailed as one of the great fairy tale classics when it was first published in 1920. Even today it appeals greatly to readers of all ages.

This volume includes the ten tales: “The Story of Tuan Mac Cairill,” “The Boyhood of Fionn,” “The Birth of Bran,” “Oisin’s Mother,” “The Wooing of Becfola,” “The Little Brawl at Allen,” “The Carl of the Drab Coat,” “The Enchanted Cave of Cesh Corran,” “Becuma of the White Skin,” and “Mongan’s Frenzy.”

Old Deccan Days, or, Hindoo Fairy Tales Current in Southern India is a collection of folk tales from India’s rich fairyland where rajas, ranis, rakshas, jackals, magicians, and cobras prevail. Children will enjoy the daring, brave, and wonderful creatures and people that populate the stories as they strive to improve their lives or to save themselves, their friends, and their loved ones from trials most deadly.

First published in 1868, this was the first English-language field-collected set of twenty-four traditional stories from the southern Indian state of Maharashtra. The author, Mary Eliza Isabella Frere (1845-1911), travelled to India in 1863 to stay with her father, Sir Bartle Frere, the Governor of Bombay. She became fascinated with Indian culture and transcribed these stories from her ayah (nanny and chaperone) Anna Liberata da Souza, who had been told them by her grandmother. Expressive and detailed, these stories formed part of southern India’s traditional oral culture, at risk at the time of being lost. German orientologist Max Mller (1823–1900) reviewed this collection and wrote that her rendition of Sanskrit originals read like a direct translation of ancient Sanskrit.

This is a copy of the third edition, published in 1881, and has a brief nine-page biography of the narrator, Anna Liberata da Souza, describing her life and childhood. In the third-edition Preface Mary Frere provides more details on the events surrounding her collecting the stories, which is in addition to the information on the stories themselves and the conventions she took in recording them given in the Introduction and the Collector’s Apology. The books was extremely popular, being reprinted in four editions by 1889 and encouraged the study of comparative mythology while revealing new information concerning Indian traditional culture.

"The Japanese Fairy Book" was originally published in 1908 as "Japanese Fairy Tales." This edition contains all twenty-two of the original stories and all thirty-one of the original illustrations by Japanese artists. The stories were translated from the modern versions recorded bySadanami Sanjin. As Ms. Yei Ozaki, the editor, tells us in the Preface, "these stories are not literal translations, and though the Japanese story and all quaint Japanese expressions have been faithfully preserved, they have been told more with the view to interest young readers of the West than the technical student of folk-lore."

Many of the stories in this volume are based on actual historical figures from Japanese history, while others are simple fanciful tales. As Yei also admits in the Preface, "I have followed my fancy in adding such touches of local color or description as they seemed to need or as pleased me, and in one or two instances I have gathered in an incident from another version." This collection was specifically intended for children, and consequently edited for that end, with the character and spirit of the original stories being carefully preserved.

The stories in this book are: My Lord Bag of Rice; The Tongue-Cut Sparrow; The Story Of Urashima Taro, The Fisher Lad; The Farmer And The Badger; The "Shinansha," Or The South Pointing Carriage; The Adventures Of Kintaro, The Golden Boy; The Story Of Princess Hase; The Story Of The Man Who Did Not Wish To Die; The Bamboo-Cutter And The Moon-Child; The Mirror Of Matsuyama; The Goblin Of Adachigahara; The Sagacious Monkey And The Boar; The Happy Hunter And The Skillful Fisher; The Story Of The Old Man Who Made Withered Trees To Flower; The Jelly Fish And The Monkey; The Quarrel Of The Monkey And The Crab; The White Hare And The Crocodiles; The Story Of Prince Yamato Take; Momotaro, Or The Story Of The Son Of A Peach; The Ogre Of Rashomon; How An Old Man Lost His Wen; and The Stones Of Five Colors And The Empress Jokwa.
