A prolific collector of fairy tales from around the globe, Andrew Lang, in this Dover Edition (no original publisher named) work, sets down a wildly entertaining variety of "stories as old as anything that men have invented." These oldest of stories include: . "The Finest Liar in the World" . "The Story of Three Wonderful Beggars" . "The Three Princes and Their Beasts" . "The Child Who Came from an Egg" . "The Enchanted Knife" . "The History of Dwarf Long Nose" . "The Girl Who Pretended to Be a Boy" . and many more. Complete with beautiful pen-and-ink illustrations, this is a collection to treasure, one in which you'll find roots of many of the stories we continue to tell anew today. Scottish journalist and author ANDREW LANG (1844-1912), a friend of Robert Louis Stevenson, produced a stunning variety and number of volumes, including books of poetry, novels, children's books, histories, and biographies, as well as criticism, essays, scholarly works of anthropology, and translations of classical literature. __________________________________________ ALSO FROM COSIMO: Lang's The Arabian Nights Entertainments, The Book of Dreams and Ghosts, A Short History of Scotland, and Myth, Ritual & Religion
