"Fairy" and "Fairies" collections as titled:

  1. Fairies—of Sorts (1908), 249pp Contents at HDL (4 or 5 stories)
  2. Fairies Afield (1911), 252pp Contents at HDL (4 stories)
  3. Fairy Stories, ed. Green (1957, 1958), 159pp
OCLC 18093356 with Contents (7 stories)
OCLC 1392638 as "Chosen and edited by Roger Lancelyn Green"

OCLC 18093356 lists 7 stories: [a] title and [b] 1875 to 1911 publication in six books apparently (perhaps not their first publications). Only one of those stories is also in one of the 1908 and 1911 "Fairies" collections, so these three collections contain 14 or 15 distinct stories.

As of 2017-03-03, only one of 14 or 15 stories is in the database, "The Story of a King's Daughter" T1744710, and only one of the books cited for the 1957 collection is in the database, Fairies Afield.

One WorldCat library record reports an 1892 collection entitled Fairy Stories, 221pp OCLC 852167925 (no Contents list).

Update 2019-07-14: the 1908 and 1911 "Fairies" collections are in the database, with all of their Contents (as 9 stories). The 1957/1958 collection is not here, nor are 5 of its 7 stories. --Pwendt|talk 18:01, 14 July 2019 (EDT)
