Overview

Oaklight Publishing has brought all of the Lang fairy books together on one volume {over 4000 pages in all}. This anthology includes all twelve of the color fairy books and two new illustrations. These stories are accounts told to Lang and his sources by story weavers and true witnesses from all over the world.

These are the original fairy stories behind popular modern literature and television such as “True Blood.”

Published around the turn of the 20th Century, Andrew Lang's 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.
