Many years ago my friend and publisher, Mr. Charles Longman, presented me with Le Cabinet desFées ('The Fairy Cabinet'). This work almost requires a swinging bookcase for its accommodation, like the Encyclopædia Britannica, and in a revolving bookcase I bestowed the volumes. Circumstancesof an intimately domestic character, 'not wholly unconnected, ' as Mr. Micawber might have said, with the narrowness of my study (in which it is impossible to 'swing a cat'), prevent the revolvingbookcase from revolving at this moment. I can see, however, that the Fairy Cabinet contains at leastforty volumes, and I think there are about sixty in all. This great plenitude of fairy tales from allquarters presents legends of fairies, witches, genii or Djinn, monsters, dragons, wicked step-mothers, princesses, pretty or plain, princes lucky or unlucky, giants, dwarfs, and enchantments. The storiesbegin with those which children like best-the old Blue Beard, Puss in Boots, Hop o' my Thumb, LittleRed Riding Hood, The Sleeping Beauty, and Toads and Pearls. These were first collected, written, andprinted at Paris in 1697. The author was Monsieur Charles Perrault, a famous personage in a greatperruque, who in his day wrote large volumes now unread. He never dreamed that he was to beremembered mainly by the shabby little volume with the tiny headpiece pictures-how unlike thefairy way of drawing by Mr. Ford, said to be known as 'Over-the-wall Ford' among authors who playcricket, because of the force with which he swipes! Perrault picked up the rustic tales which thenurse of his little boy used to tell, and he told them again in his own courtly, witty way. They do notseem to have been translated into English until nearly thirty years later, when they were published inEnglish, with the French on the opposite page, by a Mr. Pote, a bookseller at Eton. Probably theyounger Eton boys learned as much French as they condescended to acquire from these fairy tales, which are certainly more amusing than the Télémaque of Messire François de Salignac de la MotteFénelon, tutor of the children of France, Archbishop Duke of Cambrai, and Prince of the HolyRoman Empire.

No sooner were the words uttered than the statues returned to life, and the bride placed her hand joyfully in that of her new bridegroom. As for the old one, he vanished completely, and no one ever knew what became of him. (Adapted from Türkische Volksmärchen aus Stambul. Dr. Ignaz Künos. E. J. Brill, Leiden.) [...]".

The Fairy Books, or "Coloured" Fairy Books is a collection of fairy tales divided into twelve books, each associated with a different colour. Collected together by Andrew Land they are sourced from a number of different countries and were translated by Lang's wife and other translators who also retold many of the tales. The collection has been incalculably important and, although he did not source the stories himself direct from the oral tradition he can make claim to the first English translation of many. First published in 1907, The Olive Fairy Book is the 11th volume in this series.We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.

Andrew Lang (1844-1912) was a prolific Scots man of letters, a poet, novelist, literary critic and contributor to anthropology. He now is best known as the collector of folk and fairy tales. He was educated at the Edinburgh Academy, St Andrews University and at Balliol College, Oxford. As a journalist, poet, critic and historian, he soon made a reputation as one of the ablest and most versatile writers of the day. Lang was one of the founders of the study of "Psychical Research," and his other writings on anthropology include The Book of Dreams and Ghosts (1897), Magic and Religion (1901) and The Secret of the Totem (1905). He was a Homeric scholar of conservative views. Other works include Homer and the Epic (1893); a prose translation of The Homeric Hymns (1899), with literary and mythological essays in which he draws parallels between Greek myths and other mythologies; and Homer and his Age (1906). He also wrote Ballades in Blue China (1880) and Rhymes la Mode (1884).

This extraordinary volume contains 37 old and forgotten folk and fairy tales including stories like stories Lovely Ilonka, Lucky Luck, The Hairy Man, To Your Good Health! and The Story of the Seven Simons. It also contains Russian, German, French, Icelandic, American (Red) Indian, and other tales from around the world. There was a time when the president of the Folk Lore Society believed it was not acceptable for the editors of the day, in particular Mr Andrew Lang and Mr. Joseph Jacobs, to publish fairy books. Their reply was that they did not see any harm in it, and they were ready to 'put themselves on their country,' and be tried by a jury of children. And so they were proving the President of the FLS wrong. This book also contains many references to fairies. As to whether there are really any fairies or not, is a difficult question. Andrew Lang never saw any himself, but he knew several people who have seen them-in the Highlands-and heard their music. If ever you are near Nether Lochaber, go to the Fairy Hill, and you may hear the music your-self, as grown-up people have done, but you must go on a fine day. If fairies really do not exist, why do so many people believe in them, the world over? The ancient Greeks, the old Egyptians, the Hindus, the Chinese, the Africans and even the Native Americans claim to have seen them and it is unlikely that so many different peoples would have seen and heard them? The Editor cannot say 'good-bye' without advising children, as they pursue their studies, to read The Rose and the Ring, by the late Mr. Thackeray. He believes this book is quite indispensable in every child's library, and parents should be urged to purchase it at the first opportunity, as without it no education is really complete.
