In his "Blue Fairy-Book" Mr. Andrew Lang did not exhaust the fairy treasury, and in this companion volume he has collected many attractive tales. They are mainly from Madame d'Aulnoy and other French sources, the Norse and the unfailing German. Mr. Lang has condensed the story of "Sigurd" from William Morris' version of the " Volsunga Saga." The "Twelve Dancing Princesses," the "Death of Koschei the Deathless," the "Master Thief," "Kari Woodengown," "Dapplegrim," " Minnikin," and " Rapunzel " are among the less familiar tales here. This book is fully illustrated and annotated with a rare extensive biographical sketch of the author, Andrew Lang, written by Sir Edmund Gosse, CB, a contemporary poet and writer.
