Red Fairy Book
The second book, contains some familiar favorites (i.e. Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, Snow White) as well as lesser known fairy tales from French, German, Danish, Russian, and Roumanian sources.
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of first editions from the late 1890s and early 1900s and there may be instances in which the language is considered outdated or offensive today.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
