Lang, Andrew: The Olive Fairy Book. 01 Oct 07

This is the missing eleventh book from the "fairy stories of many colors" series. First published in 1907 it contains stories from all around the world with many from India. This book completes the series.

The remaining volume I mentioned in an earlier post, the rose book, is nothing more than a collection of stories drawn from other already posted books and therefore adds nothing new.

I wish to thank Patricia and Flogiston for pointing me toward sources for this volume. Thank you.

Stories included in this volume are as follows:
  • Madschun
  • The Blue Parrot
  • Geirlug The King’s Daughter
  • The Story of Little King Loc
  • A Long-Bow Story
  • Jackal or Tiger?
  • The Comb and the Collar
  • The Thanksgiving of the Wazir
  • Samba the Coward
  • Kupti and Imani
  • The Strange Adventures of Little Maia
  • Diamond Cut Diamond
  • The Green Knight
  • The Five Wise Words of the Guru
  • The Golden-Headed Fish
  • Dorani
  • The Satin Surgeon
  • The Billy Goat and the King
  • The Story of Zoulvisia
  • Grasp All, Lose All
  • The Fate of the Turtle
  • The Snake Prince
  • The Prince and the Princess in the Forest
  • The Clever Weaver
  • The Boy Who Found Fear At Last
  • He Wins Who Waits
  • The Steel Cane
  • The Punishment of the Fairy Gangana
  • The Silent Princess
