Tales from Shakespeare: William Shakespeare
Tales from Shakespeare Charles & Mary Lamb Illustrated by Arthur Rackham The book is designed to make the stories of Shakespeare's plays familiar to the young. However, as noted in the author's Preface, "Shakespeare's words are used whenever it seemed possible to bring them in; and in whatever has been added to give them the regular form of a connected story, diligent care has been taken to select such words as might least interrupt the effect of the beautiful English tongue in which he wrote: therefore, words introduced into our language since his time have been as far as possible avoided." Mary Lamb was responsible for the comedies, while Charles wrote the tragedies; they wrote the preface between them. Tales from Shakespeare has been republished many times. It was illustrated by Sir John Gilbert in 1866, by Arthur Rackham in 1899 and 1909, by Louis Monziès in 1908, by Walter Paget in 1910, and by D. C. Eyles in 1934.

Tales from Shakespeare: (illustrated by Arthur Rackham with an introduction by Alfred Ainger)
First published in 1807, “Tales from Shakespeare” is the classic retelling of Shakespeare’s plays by brother and sister duo Charles and Mary Lamb. All told twenty of Shakespeare’s plays are represented in this work. On what basis the two made their selection of tales is unknown, the English Histories are left unattempted, as well as the Roman Plays. Of the comedies only “Love’s Labour’s Lost” is omitted. As Alfred Ainger comments in his introduction “perhaps Miss Lamb felt how little would have remained of the original comedy when the poetical element in its language and the brilliant wit of its dialogue had been removed”. What is represented of Shakespeare’s plays is a magnificent retelling of some of his most popular works, ideal for introducing young readers to the brilliance of the Bard. As the two write in their preface “The following Tales are meant to be submitted to the young reader as an introduction to the study of Shakespeare,” so “that the true Plays of Shakespeare may prove to them in older years—enrichers of the fancy, strengtheners of virtue, a withdrawing from all selfish and mercenary thoughts, a lesson of all sweet and honourable thoughts and actions”. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper, includes an introduction by Alfred Ainger, and illustrations by Arthur Rackham.

    A Christmas Carol (Illustrated by Arthur Rackham with an Introduction by Hall Caine)
    First published in 1843, “A Christmas Carol” is arguably Dickens’s most popular and accessible work. An instant success ever since its original publication, it is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a cold, bitter, old miser who despises Christmas and everything about it. When the ghost of Scrooge’s former business partner, Jacob Marley, visits him on Christmas Eve exactly seven years after his death, Scrooge is challenged to rethink his ways before it is too late. Over the course of the evening he is visited by three more spirits, the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Yet to Come. These visits help Scrooge to see the error in his ways transforming him by the end of the story into a kinder and gentler soul. Inspired by his experiences as a child, Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” highlights the plight of the lower class in 19th century England through an enduring and ultimately heart-warming tale. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper, includes an introduction by Hall Caine, and is illustrated by Arthur Rackham.

    Aesop's Fables (Illustrated by Arthur Rackham with an Introduction by G. K. Chesterton)
    The history of the fable likely does not originate with Aesop; however it is with him that we associate the fable’s most ancient of known origins. Little is actually known of the life of Aesop. According to the historical accounts of Herodotus, Aristotle, and Plutarch, he was a slave from the Greek island of Samos who lived between 620 and 564 BC. Described as a strikingly ugly man he is said to have secured his freedom through his cleverness. Known for his wit, Aesop would become employed as an advisor by kings and city-states. The simplicity of the fable cannot be overstated. The short narrative form and the use of animals to personifying particular human characteristics makes the fable a particularly useful form of instruction for imparting bits of wisdom to children. Dozens of fables have been attributed to Aesop, however given their sometimes conflicting moral lessons, the attribution of some fables to Aesop is considered by certain scholars as to be spurious. Collected together here are some of the most famous examples of Aesop’s fables. This edition follows the translation of V. S. Vernon Jones, includes an introduction by G. K. Chesterton, is illustrated by Arthur Rackham, and is printed on premium acid-free paper.

    Grimm's Fairy Tales (Illustrated by Arthur Rackham)
    Once upon a time, two brothers wished to preserve their German folklore in a collection of tales that they believed had been handed down for generations. When they began in 1812 they had just 86 stories that rather harshly reflected the difficult life of the European peasantry. Subsequent editions would grow to hold over 200 tales. As time passed, the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, with all of its royalty, magical creatures, and brave adventures, were destined to become one of the most famous examples of European folklore ever written. This compilation includes sixty-four of their most famous tales including “The Frog Prince”, “Rapunzel”, “Hansel and Gretel”, “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Tom Thumb”, “Rumpelstiltskin”, “Cinderella”, and “Snow White”. The stories of this compilation are drawn from the translations of Edgar Taylor, Marian Edwardes, Lucy Crane, and Margaret Hunt. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper, includes an introduction by Edmund Gosse, and is beautifully illustrated by Arthur Rackham.

    Aesop's Fables (Word Cloud Classics)
    A collection of charming and enduring stories that convey morals to young and old alike.

    Aesop was a slave and storyteller who lived in ancient Greece around 620–564 BC. No writings by him exist (if they ever existed at all), yet numerous stories and tales have been credited to him and have been shared through oral tradition throughout the world.  Many of these use animals as the main characters to convey deeper meanings and morals that have become ingrained in our cultural--and personal--belief systems. For example, in “The Goatherd and the Goat” we learn that there is no use trying to hide what can’t be hidden. In “The Ass and the Purchaser” we find that people are known by the company they keep. In “The Boys and the Frogs,” one person’s pleasure may be another person’s pain. “The Dogs and the Fox” show how easy it is to kick a man when he’s down. And misery loves company, as we see in “The Fox Without a Tail.” 

    * This beautiful book comes with luxurious endpapers, a beautiful and stylish heat-burnished cover, and a convenient 5 x 7 size.
    * The widely popular collection of stories has sold millions of copies and has been translated into countless languages and dialects.

    Aesop’s Fables have been one of the world’s most charming collections of stories that have influenced thousands of other literary works.
