Andrew Lang's Fairy Books (All Twelve) Andrew Lang read online review & book description:
Andrew Lang's Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy
Books constitute a twelve-book series of fairy tale collections. Although Andrew
Lang did not collect the stories himself from the oral tradition, the extent of
his sources, who had collected them originally (with the notable exception of
Madame d'Aulnoy), made them an immensely influential collection, especially as
he used foreign-language sources, giving many of these tales their first
appearance in English. As acknowledged in the prefaces, although Lang himself
made most of the selections, his wife and other translators did a large portion
of the translating and telling of the actual stories.
