fairy book shelvesThere are included here a series of books and articles that are longer in copyright in the United States and that may be of interest to those who want to know more about fairy-lore. Some are available elsewhere on the web, though not in the form presented here, some are now rare: in fact, I have been particularly keen to put up a text when it was difficult for me to find. Some are extracts of longer books presented in this form for convenience. For full reference please go to the bibliography.
