Some have not been seen in print or heard for over a century. 33% of the Publisher's profit from the sale of this book will be donated to the GOSH Children's Charity. There was a time when the president of the Folk Lore Society believed it was not acceptable for the editors of the day, Mr Andrew Lang and Mr. Joseph Jacobs, to publish fairy books. Their reply was that they did not see any harm in it, and they were ready to 'put themselves on their country,' and be tried by a jury of children. As to whether there are really any fairies or not, that is a difficult question. The Editor never saw any himself, but he knew several people who have seen them-in the Highlands-and heard their music. If ever you are in Nether Lochaber, go to the Fairy Hill, and you may hear the music yourself, as grown-up people have done, but you must go on a fine day. Again, if there are really no fairies, why do people believe in them, all over the world? The ancient Greeks, the old Egyptians, the Hindus, and even the Red Indians, and is it likely, if there are no fairies, that so many different peoples would have seen and heard them? This volume contains Russian, German, French, Icelandic, Red Indian, and other stories. The Editor cannot say 'good-bye' without advising them, as they pursue their studies, to read The Rose and the Ring, by the late Mr. Thackeray. He believes this book is quite indispensable in every child's library, and parents should be urged to purchase it at the first opportunity, as without it no education is complete, not to mention the benefit an ill child at the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital will derive from it, both literally and financially.
