"Fairy Tales From Many Lands is valuable today for the pictures, by that greatest of illustrators, Arthur Rackham - line drawings, silhouettes, and twelve superb full-colour plates.  In addition it can be enjoyed as a particularly attractive collection of stories.  there are three tales from Japan, and one each from England, Belgium, Scotland, Serbia, Wales, Russia, Portugal, France, Italy and Ireland.  Most of them are little known, and are told in a form characteristic of the country they represent."
