Excerpt from The Oak-Tree Fairy Book: Favorite Fairy Tales The first sixteen tales in this book have a special claim to the attention of American readers, for they were picked up in this country. Two or three of them are to be found in nearly all our fairy-tale collections, and it would not be safe to say that any of them originated here; yet there are none of the sixteen but that differ in an interesting way from the usual versions, and most of them are quite unfa miliar to the present generation. I am indebted for them to friends and correspondents and to the American 701mm! Of Folk Lore. Readers acquainted with similar tales not in the ordinary collections will confer a favor if they will communicate with me.
