20075 The Crimson Fairy Book, A. Lang, H. J. Ford Illus, Longmans 1st printing

The Crimson Fairy Book. Longmans 1st.

In an amusing preface, the editor points out yet again that he is not the creator of these stories, as most of his readers seem to think. "Like nature, popular tales are too vast to be the creation of a single modern mind." His wife, Mrs. Lang, actually wrote the adaptations for most of them so his role has been in ferreting out the interesting and varied world wide tales of this collection.
