Synopsis:
During the nineteenth century, scholarly and popular attitudes towards the fairy tale shifted and a darker vision of fairies emerged. As traditional fairy tales and literary imaginings progressed, fairies remained a delight for children but also became an escape for adults perturbed by a growing tide of religious doubt. This five-volume set includes rare editions of little known as well as famous fairy tales.
