Welsh Fairy-Tales and Other Stories | Annotated Tale

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

Author's Note

THESE tales were collected by me whilst living in Anglesea during the winter 1891-2.

               With the exception of the French story, they were told me and I took them down at the time.

               Particulars respecting the narratives will be found in the Notes.

               In most cases I have done but little “editing”, preferring to give the stories as told.

               The old book referred to in the Notes I bought from a country bookseller, who knew neither its author, title, or date, but I have since been informed the book is Williams’ Observations on the Snowdon Mountains, published in 1802, a book well known to students of Celtic literature.

               CLARINGBOLD, BROADSTAIRS. April 1894.
