First edition of Dulcken's second fairy tale-translation (his first being "Stories and Tales", 1864). Dulcken's translations make up the 9th Andersen fairy tale translations to appear in English.
The "Stories and Tales" were illustrated with 8 illustrations by Bayes, and in 1866 a collected edition of all the fairy tales from Dulcken's two collections plus two other ones appeared in one volume under the title "Hans Christian Andersen's Stories for the Household." Dulcken's translations became exceedingly popular and were reprinted numerous times.
Dulcken is considered one of the three best contemporary Andersen fairy tale-translators.
