Andrew Lang's Fairy Books—also known as Andrew Lang's "Coloured"
Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's Fairy Books of Many Colors—are a series of
twelve collections of fairy tales, published between 1889 and 1910. Each
volume is distinguished by its own color. In all, 437 tales from a
broad range of cultures and countries are presented. Andrew Lang
(1844–1912) was a Scots poet, novelist, and literary critic. Although he
did not collect the stories himself from oral primary sources only
Madame d'Aulnoy and Lang had collected tales from such a large variety
of sources, which made the collections immensely influential. Lang gave
many of the tales their first appearance in English. As acknowledged in
the prefaces, although Lang himself made most of the selections, his
wife and other translators did a large portion of the translating and
retelling of the actual stories.
