The Yello Fairy Book edited by Andrew Lang

Andrew Lang (1844 – 1912) was a Scottish historian, poet, novelist, and literary critic.
He is best known as one of the most important collectors of folk and fairy tales. The twelve fairy tale books he edited contain stories from around the world, collected from various sources, and translated mainly by his wife and other enthusiasts. The Green Fairy Book was the third in the series and was first published in 1892 with Lang stating that it would “probably be the last in the collection”. This is the Superb Folio Society edition with an introduction by Maria Tatar..

48 tales from all over the world include The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Tinder-box, How to Tell a True Princess, and The Nightingale, from Andersen, Grimm, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Germany, France, England, American Indians, and Iceland.

‘Once upon a time…’ For readers everywhere, these familiar words hold the promise of transport to a land full of marvels and magic, a world of enchanted forests and cobwebbed castles, of giants, witches, kidnapped princesses and caskets brimming with precious gems; a world of startling contrasts, where fate can deal a cruel blow yet wishes can also come true. Andrew Lang’s Rainbow Fairy Books remain the greatest collection of such tales in the English language, celebrated for their breadth, variety, and clear, lively prose.
