The Tales in this volume are intended for children, who will like, it is hoped, the old stories that have pleased so many generations. The tales of Perrault are printed from the old English version of the eighteenth century. The stories from the Cabinet des Fees and from Madame d'Aulnoy are translated, or rather adapted, by Miss Minnie Wright, who has also, by M. Henri Carnoy's kind permission, rendered 'The Bronze Ring' from his Traditions Populaires de I'Asie Mineure (Maisonneuve, Paris, 1889). The stories from Grimm are translated by Miss May Sellar; another from the German by Miss Sylvia Hunt; the Norse tales are a version by Mrs. Alfred Hunt; 'The Terrible Head' is adapted from Apollodorus, Simonides, and Pindar by the Editor; Miss Violet Hunt condensed 'Aladdin'; Miss May Kendall did the same for Gulliver's Travels; 'The Fairy Paribanou' is abridged from the old English translation of Galland. Messrs. Chambers have kindly allowed us to reprint 'The Red Etin' and 'The Black Bull of Norroway' ' from Mr. Robert Chambers' Popular Traditions of Scotland. 'Dick Whittington' is from the chap book edited by Mr. Gomme and Mr. Wheatley for the Villon Society; ' Jack the Giant-Killer' is from a chap book, but a good version of this old favourite is hard to procure.
Andrew Lang's Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Books constitute a twelve-book series of fairy tale collections. Although Andrew Lang did not collect the stories himself from the oral tradition, the extent of his sources, who had collected them originally (with the notable exception of Madame d'Aulnoy), made them an immensely influential collection, especially as he used foreign-language sources, giving many of these tales their first appearance in English. As acknowledged in the prefaces, although Lang himself made most of the selections, his wife and other translators did a large portion of the translating and telling of the actual stories. The Blue Fairy Book assembled a wide range of tales, with seven from the Brothers Grimm, five from Madame d'Aulnoy, three from the Arabian Nights, and four Norse stories, among other sources.

A collection of several short fairy tales by the noted Scottish poet, novelist, literary critic, and anthropologist Andrew Lang. These tales are first English translations of fairy tales from many different languages. This volume was published in a colour-coded manner with yellow at the background of each of the pages.
This book forms part of Andrew Lang's 'Coloured' Fairy Books series - a series of twelve collections of fairy tales, published between 1889 and 1910. Each volume is distinguished by its own colour, and all in all, 437 tales from a wide array of cultures and countries are presented. Andrew Lang (1844 - 1912) was a Scots poet, novelist and literary critic, with a passion for folkloric story telling. Most of his volumes (including this, the 'Blue Fairy Book') were beautifully illustrated by Henry J. Ford (1860 - 1941), an inordinately talented artist who came to public attention with his illustrations for Lang. The books captured the imagination of British children, and later became worldwide bestsellers in the 1880s and 1890s. This 'Blue Book' contains such classic fairy tales as, 'Little Red Riding Hood', 'Sleeping Beauty', 'Cinderella', 'Aladdin', 'Beauty and the Beast', 'Hansel and Gretel', and many more.
