About This Text
This text was prepared by Lisa Ripperton, using
as copytext, Nursery Tales Told to the Children, by
Amy Steedman and illustrated by Paul Woodroffe, London: T.C. & E. C. Jack.
Scanning and editing of the text was performed by Phillip Brown
who publishes many related books on his
Celtic Folklore and
Fairy Tales and Fables
web sites. With his kind permission, I used his text as the basis for my own.
The exact date of publication is not known, but you can see from an
inscription on the title page in the
Front Matter, that it was before 1913.
Since this book was first published before 1923, it is in the public domain
in the United States. By
U.S. law, it entered the public domain 75 years after
its first publication.
Numerous color illustrations, by Paul Woodroffe,
are included in the text.
