       Additional Information  
     
      "The Pink Fairy Book", the fifth in Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Book series, was originally published in 1897. This edition contains all 41 of the original stories and all 69 of the original black-and-white illustrations. *** The collections were specifically intended for children, and consequently edited for that end. *** When Andrew began publishing these books there were almost no English fairy tale books in circulation. The series proved of great influence in children's literature, and inspired a host of imitators. The series also proved to be an inspiration to J.R. Tolken and his Middle-Earth collection of novels. *** This book contains these stories: The Cat's Elopement; How the Dragon Was Tricked; The Goblin and the Grocer; The House in the Wood; Uraschimataro and the Turtle; The Slaying of the Tanuki; The Flying Trunk; The Snow-man; The Shirt-collar; The Princess in the Chest; The Three Brothers; The Snow-queen; The Fir-tree; Hans, the Mermaid's Son; Peter Bull; The Bird 'Grip'; Snowflake; I Know What I Have Learned; The Cunning Shoemaker; The King Who Would Have a Beautiful Wife; Catherine and Her Destiny; How the Hermit Helped to Win the King's Daughter; The Water of Life; The Wounded Lion; The Man Without a Heart; The Two Brothers; Master and Pupil; The Golden Lion; The Sprig of Rosemary; The White Dove; The Troll's Daughter; Esben and the Witch; Princess Minon-minette; Maiden Bright-eye; The Merry Wives; King Lindorm; The Jackal; the Dove; and the Panther; The Little Hare; The Sparrow with the Slit Tongue; The Story of Ciccu; and Don Giovanni De La Fortuna
