Having stripped the rainbow of its primary colors for titles for his annual collection of fairy-tales, Mr. Lang was forced to employ a neutral tint. Besides "The Red Fairy Book," we have had a Blue, a Yellow, a Green, and a Pink, a " Blue Poetry Book," a " Red True Story Book," and a " Red Book of Animal Stories." A " True Blue Fairy Book" should have found a place in the series; but this Grey one is negative only in its name and its hue. The stories themselves are full of action and color. They are gathered together from Lithuania and France, from Africa and Germany and Greece, and not only does Mr. Lang stand sponsor for the volume, but Mrs. Lang and Miss Lang have helped translate and adapt it. This book isfully illustrated and annotated with a rare extensive biographical sketch of the author, Andrew Lang, written by Sir Edmund Gosse, CB, a contemporary poet and writer. Contents: Preface Donkey Skin The Goblin Pony An Impossible Enchantment The Story Of Dschemil and Dschemila Janni and the Draken The Partnership of the Thief and the Liar. Fortunatus and His Purse The Goat-faced Girl What Came of Picking Flowers The Story of Bensurdatu The Magician's Horse The Little Gray Man Herr Lazarus and the Draken The Story of the Queen of the Flowery Isles Udea and Her Seven Brothers The White Wolf Mohammed with the Magic Finger Bobino The Dog and the Sparrow The Story of the Three Sons of Hali The Story of the Fair Circassians The Jackal and the Spring The Bear The Sunchild The Daughter Of Buk Ettemsuch Laughing Eye and Weeping Eye, or the Limping Fox The Unlooked-for Prince The Simpleton The Street Musicians The Twin Brothers Cannetella The Ogre A Fairy's Blunder Long, Broad, and Quickeye Prunella

"Andrew Lang's Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's ""Coloured"" Fairy Books constitute a twelve-book series of fairy tale collections. Although Andrew Lang did not collect the stories himself from the oral tradition, the extent of his sources, who had collected them originally (with the notable exception of Madame d'Aulnoy), made them an immensely influential collection, especially as he used foreign-language sources, giving many of these tales their first appearance in English. As acknowledged in the prefaces, although Lang himself made most of the selections, his wife and other translators did a large portion of the translating and telling of the actual stories.The Red Fairy Book is the second in the series."

Four of the volumes from 1908 to 1912 were published by "Mrs. Lang".According to Anita Silvey, "The irony of Lang's life and work is that although he wrote for a profession--literary criticism; fiction; poems; books and articles on anthropology, mythology, history, and travel ... he is best recognized for the works he did not write."[1]The 12 Coloured Fairy Books were illustrated by H. J. Ford (Henry Justice Ford)--the first two volumes shared with G. P. Jacomb-Hood and Lancelot Speed respectively, and the sequels alone.[2] A. Wallis Mills also contributed some illustrations.
