Folk-Lore and Legends: German
The author of Folk-Lore and Legends: German is unknown, as are the other seven books in the series. Published by W.W. Gibbings in 1892, Folk-Lore and Legends: German features some of the finest German folk tales and stories for children. This was the first book in the series, and editor Charles John Tibbits said the tales from German folklore were “invested with a charming simplicity of thought which cannot but excite admiration.” The other stories he claimed had a wild, weird nature. All of the stories had a moral use, conveying the “sure punishment of vice and the reward of virtue,” and this is a characteristic indicative of most, if not, all of the German folk tales and fairy tales, including the work of the Brothers Grimm, prominent authors of German folklore.
