Violet Fairy Book
Much like the contents of the Orange Fairy Book, the Violet Fairy Book contains less familiar fairytales from a wide range of countries including Japan, Serbia, Lithuania, Portugal, and Russia.
Each of these four books contains a collection of over thirty unabridged fairytales edited by Andrew Lang. The stories are presented in "clear, lively prose for which Lang was famous," and they are generally considered to be the "best English versions of standard stories."Recommended in The Well-Trained Mind, these books will become a treasured addition to your home library. Please note that these are complete and unabridged versions of first editions from the late 1890s and early 1900s and there may be instances in which the language is considered outdated or offensive today. ~ Enh
