In 1970 Katharine Briggs published in four volumes the vast and authoritativeDictionary of British Folktales and Legendsto wide acclaim. This sampler comprises the very best of those tales and legends. Gathered within, readers will find an extravagance of beautiful princesses and stout stable boys, sour-faced witches and kings with hearts of gold. Each tale is a masterpiece of storytelling, from the hilarious 'Three Sillies' to the delightfully macabre 'Sammle's Ghost'.
Katharine Briggs(1898-1980). Eminent folklorist and former president of the Folklore Society.
