Catalogue Note

"A series of anthologies... beginning with The Blue Fairy Book... compiled for children by Andrew Lang between 1889 and 1910... put both well known and obscure tales (some of them recently collected and never before printed) into a form that was accessible and attractive. The books became classics in their own right, and have endured in print..." (Carpenter and Prichard, The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature, 1984)l
