English Fairy Tales | Annotated Tale

COMPLETE! Entered into SurLaLune Database in July 2018 with all known ATU Classifications.

Notes and References

IN THE following notes I give first the source whence I obtained the various tales. Then come parallels in some fulness for the United Kingdom, but only a single example for foreign countries, with a bibliographical reference where further variants can be found. Finally, a few remarks are sometimes added where the tale seems to need it. In two cases (Nos. xvi. and xxi.) I have been more full.


SurLaLune Note

This article comprises Jacobs' introduction to the Notes and References section of his book. The notes for the individual tales have been added as notes to the actual tales in this collection for the reader's convenience.
