THE RED FAIRY BOOK - With Original Illustrations: A Book That Inspired Tolkien. "I have been a lover of fairy stories since I learned to read," Professor J.R.R. Tolkien once stated. The Red Fairy Book was one of Tolkien's favorites. Fantasy and medieval literature specialist Douglas A. Anderson asserted, "As a child Tolkien found delight in the variously colored fairy tale books of Andrew Lang. Especially he enjoyed 'The Red Fairy Book', for it contained Lang's retelling of one of the greatest dragon stories in northern literature, that of Fafnir from the Volsung Saga." In a 1965 interview Tolkien said, "Dragons always attracted me as a mythological element. They seemed to be able to comprise human malice and bestiality together so extraordinarily well, and also a sort of malicious wisdom and shrewdness - terrifying creatures." The Red Fairy Book was illustrated by H.J. Ford and Lancelot Speed. As a child, and later as an adult, Tolkien was exposed to these pictures as he leafed through the pages of the fairytales. Consciously or unconsciously, he came under their spell. The gorgeously illustrated Red Fairy Book was a source of immense joy to Tolkien as he was growing up, helping to inform his creation of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

Andrew Lang's Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Books constitute a twelve-book series of fairy tale collections. Although Andrew Lang did not collect the stories himself from the oral tradition, the extent of his sources, who had collected them originally (with the notable exception of Madame d'Aulnoy), made them an immensely influential collection, especially as he used foreign-language sources, giving many of these 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 telling of the actual stories.

And as she sewed and gazed out to the white landscape, she pricked her finger with the needle, and three drops of blood fell on the snow outside...

This bold and eclectic anthology contains wonderful renditions of old favourites such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel, as well as some little-known stories like The Death of Koschei the Deathless and The Nettle Spinner.

IN a second gleaning of the fields of Fairy Land we cannot expect to find a second Perrault. But there are good stories enough left, and it is hoped that some in the Red Fairy Book may have the attraction of being less familiar than many of the old friends. The tales have been translated, or, in the case of those from Madame d'Aulnoy's long stories, adapted, by Mrs. Hunt from the Norse, by Miss Minnie Wright from Madame d'Aulnoy, by Mrs. Lang and Miss Bruce from other French sources, by Miss May Sellar, Miss Farquharson, and Miss Blackley from the German, while the story of 'Sigurd' is condensed by the Editor from Mr. William Morris's prose version of the 'Volsunga Saga.' The Editor has to thank his friend, M. Charles Marelles, for permission to reproduce his versions of the 'Pied Piper,' of 'Drakestail,' and of 'Little Golden Hood' from the French, and M. Henri Carnoy for the same privilege in regard to 'The Six Sillies' from La Tradition...
