Tales of Laughter ECSK T2630761 --q 2019-10-15
A truncated version of 1908 anthology Tales of Laughter: A Third Fairy Book (<a href="">Library of Fairy Literature</a>, 3) must be expected, from the examples of undated Every Child Should Know anthologies Fairy Stories [ECSK] and Tales of Wonder [ECSK], which are truncated versions of the first and fourth Library of Fairy Literature anthologies. The known edition may contain the corresponding interior illustrations by Elizabeth MacKinstry, for Tales of Laughter in its 1926 edition, as does Fairy Stories [ECSK] in relation to the first LFL anthology.

Four volumes edited by Wiggin and Smith, on the other hand, are truncated editions of the first four anthologies The Library of Fairy Literature (out of sequence, all except Talking Beasts 1911). Evidently their arabic numeral pages (and encompassed full-page interior illustrations, if any) are identical to those of the LFL anthologies, up to a point.

"with the assistance of Kate Stephens"; edited by Mabie and Stephens; etc


  • The first four volumes were cut in the 1930s/40s for the What Every Child Should Know Library, by The Parents' Institute. --with most interior pages identical up to a point
  • First editions were reprinted in the sense that most or all interior pages after the title leaf were identical (Illustrations inserted, at least for The Fairy Ring from 1910).
