English Fairy Tales by Joseph Jacobs

Book Description

One of the great nineteenth-century folklorists, Joseph Jacobs collected stories from oral sources and made scholarly notes on their origin, but he deliberately recorded them in a plain and direct style which he thought suitable for children and which makes them 'supremely tellable'. First published in 1890, his famous collection includes all the well-known tales, such as Jack and The Beanstalk and Dick Whittington, as well as British variants of stories common to many cultures. The illustrations by John Batten are taken from the first edition.
