About this Item: London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1892, 1892. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, elaborate pictorial decorations to spine and front board gilt, gilt edges, black coated endpapers. Spine rolled, light rubbing to tips, light foxing to endpapers, an excellent copy. Frontispiece with tissue-guard, illustrated title page, numerous illustrations by H. J. Ford in text including 11 full-page. First edition of the third installment in the Fairy Book series, beautifully illustrated by H. J. Ford. "These fairy tales are the oldest stories in the world, and as they were first made by men who were childlike for their own amusement, so they amuse children still, and also grown-up people who have not forgotten how they once were children." (Lang's preface). This collection contains such well-known stories as the Three Little Pigs and the Story of the Three Bears, alongside many less well-known though more fantastic. Andrew Lang (1844-1912), Scottish poet, scholar and journalist, devoted most of his life to folklore and the compilation of traditional fairy stories from around the world. Begun in 1889, "his 'coloured' fairy books have been popular with boys and girls since their first appearance." (Osborne Collection I, pp. 34-36, and II, p. 604). Seller Inventory # 117200

Each volume is distinguished by its own color. In all, 437 tales from a range of cultures and countries are presented. Lang's urge to gather and publish fairy tales was rooted in his own experience with the folk and fairy tales of his home territory along the English-Scottish border. At the time he worked, English fairy-tale collections were rare: Dinah Maria Mulock Craik's The Fairy Book (1869) was a lonely precedent. When Lang began his efforts, he "was fighting against the critics and educationists of the day", who judged the traditional tales' "unreality, brutality, and escapism to be harmful for young readers, while holding that such stories were beneath the serious consideration of those of mature age" (Roger Lancelyn Green).
