This Children's book of stories is a compilation of some of the best fairy-tales in the world. They are selected and arranged by Penrhyn W. Coussens, editor of 'Poems Children Love' who also provides an insightful introduction. The stories include some of Charles Perrault's finest tales; 'Bluebeard', 'Cinderella' and 'Puss in Boots', those of Hans Christian Anderson such as 'The Fir Tree', Mme. D'Aulnoy's classic 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' together with the Grimm Brother's 'Hansel and Gretel', 'The Elves and the Shoemaker' and 'Rumplestiltskin.' Much older stories, such as those from Aesop's Fables are also encompassed. All of these wonderful tales are accompanied by beautiful colour illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith (1863-1935). She was a much celebrated American illustrator during the 'Golden Age of Illustration' and an incredibly prolific contributor to well respected books and magazines; a pioneering woman in the male-dominated world of fine-art. The fairy-tales are presented in their original translations, alongside Willcox Smith's illustrations which further refine and elucidate Coussens’ thoughtfully edited collection. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.

It chanced during one winter, a few years ago, that our cities were bent on discussing the theory of the Age. By an odd coincidence, four or five noted men were each reading a discourse to the citizens of Boston or New York, on the Spirit of the Times. It so happened that the subject had the same prominence in some remarkable pamphlets and journals issued in London in the same season. To me, however, the question of the times resolved itself into a practical question of the conduct of life. How shall I live? We are incompetent to solve the times. Our geometry cannot span the huge orbits of the prevailing ideas, behold their return, and reconcile their opposition. We can only obey our own polarity. ‘Tis fine for us to speculate and elect our course, if we must accept an irresistible dictation.

Knights and ladies, giants and dragons, tournaments, battles, quests and crusades are commonplace in stories for children. This book examines how late Victorians and Edwardians retold medieval narratives of chivalry—epics, romances, sagas, legends and ballads. Stories of Beowulf, Arthur, Gawain, St. George, Roland, Robin Hood and many more thrilled and instructed children, and encouraged adult reading. Lavish volumes and schoolbooks of the era featured illustrated texts, many by major artists. Children’s books, an essential part of Edwardian publishing, were disseminated throughout the English-speaking world. Many are being reprinted today. This book examines related contexts of Medievalism expressed in painting, architecture, music and public celebrations, and the works of major authors, including Sir Walter Scott, Tennyson, Longfellow and William Morris. The book explores national identity expressed through literature, ideals of honor and valor in the years before World War I, and how childhood reading influenced 20th–century writers as diverse as C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Siegfried Sassoon, David Jones, Graham Greene, Ian Fleming and John Le Carré.
