Two versions of an author's name that are printed with and without accents are treated as variants; you should not convert one form to another.

Author names that vary only in capitalization are not tracked as variants.

Suffixes such as "Jr" should follow a comma and space, and be followed by a period if they are abbreviations. This should be regularized if they are not presented this way in the publication. E.g. "Sam Merwin Jr" should be entered as "Sam Merwin, Jr."; similarly, it's "Edward Elmer Smith, Ph.D."; or "Frederick C. Durant, III". Other prefixes and suffixes should follow analogous rules.

best-known for his Fantasy Undine (1811; trans George Soane as Undine: A Romance 1818 UK), which has become one of the classics of German literature. It tells of a husband and wife whose daughter is lost, believed drowned. They take in a Changeling – in fact, an Elemental – whom they call Undine. She falls in love with a knight, Huldbrand, and thereby acquires a Soul. Huldbrand subsequently loves another and Undine is banished, but she returns on his wedding night to exact her Vengeance. FF adapted his story as the libretto for the Opera Undine (1816) by E T A Hoffmann. (>>> Undine.)
Undine drew upon the Melusine legend (> Lamia) so beloved by the German Romantics (> Romanticism), of whom FF was a leading light.

was the first to adapt the legend of Siegfried in his play Sigurd (1808), to which he later added Sigurd's Rache (1810) and Aslaugas Ritter (1810; trans as "Aslauga's Knights" in German Romance ed Thomas Carlyle anth 1827 UK), the three forming the trilogy Der Held des Nordens ["The Hero of the North"], which hugely influenced Richard Wagner.



Der Zauberring (1813; trans as The Magic Ring 1825 UK), about a knight who acquires a magical Ring and uses it in his many Quests against evil forces, is the archetypal novel of Heroic Fantasy.



Sintram (1815; trans as Sintram and His Companions 1820 UK) – inspired by the engraving "The Knight, Death and the Devil" (1513) by Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) – is an Allegory on human life.

FF assembled his collected works as Ausgabe letzter Hand ["Collected Works"] (coll 1841 12 vols). The English-language equivalent was the 6-vol Fouqué's Works (1845 UK) ed James Burn, whose second volume, Romantic Fiction, includes most of FF's shorter fantasies. FF's main works are more readily available as Undine, and Sintram and his Companions (coll 1845 US; vt Sintram and his Companions, and Undine 1896 UK) and Sintram and his Companions; Aslauga's Knight (coll 1887 UK).

The tales are well rendered into a plain and graceful English, and the book is lavishly illustrated with pretty and effective pictures from the fertile pen of Mr Gordon Browne. This versatile artist [38 yrs old] was never better fitted than with these eerie and fantastical themes. The book is all the more valuable for the interesting introduction contributed to it by Miss C. M. Yonge."

(This suggests Laurence Housman as author of the 1914 Sindbad collection)


Prologue lacks the final sentence, "Following is his narration of the strange and wonderful adventures he experienced in his seven voyages:--"
"The First Voyage of Sindbad the Sailor" lacks the last sentence of the second paragraph, "Then fires were lighted, and, while some cooked ..."; p207 lacks almost all of the paragraph "Staggering forward ..." --which is jarring ; p208 "My condition ..."

French-born artist Edmund Dulac (1882–1953) achieved prominence during the Golden Age of Illustration. His work encompasses a wide variety of themes and styles, although he preferred to work in watercolors and remains best known for his imaginative illustrations for fairy tales and other children's books.
Illustrator and artist Laurence Housman (1865–1959), brother of A. E. Housman, ranged in his writings from mystic poetry to political satire. A committed socialist and pacifist, he was an active supporter of women's suffrage.

As presented by SFE-Fantasy

In that year he began to produce an annual Christmas Book for Hodder & Stoughton, the firm which had published Rackham's first Christmas gift-book. The sequence, for which ED did much of his best fantasy work, comprises
  1. Stories from the Arabian Nights (coll 1907), text by Laurence Housman
  2. Shakespeare's Comedy of the Tempest (1908)
  3. The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám (1909) by Edward Fitzgerald (1809-1883)
  4. The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales (coll 1910), adapted from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault by Arthur Quiller-Couch
  5. The Snow Queen; and Other Stories from Hans Andersen (coll 1911)
  6. The Bells and Other Stories (coll 1912) by Edgar Allan Poe
  7. Princess Badoura (1913), text by Housman (again from The Arabian Nights)
  8. Sinbad the Sailor & Other Stories from the Arabian Nights (coll 1914). WWI broke the sequence, the next title being a compilation for charity, Edmund Dulac's Picture-Book for the French Red Cross (graph 1915; cut vt Edmund Dulac's Picture-Book 1919). The sequence proper then continued with
  9. The Dreamer of Dreams (1915)
  10. The Stealers of Light (1916), both by Queen Marie of Roumania (1875-1938)
  11. Edmund Dulac's Fairy-Book – Fairy Tales of the Allied Nations (coll 1916)

I think I will not trouble whether the most common form of her name should include "," or "the", nor with its spelling of her country, nor "Queen Marie" vs "Marie Queen". The first editor's choice is not badly wrong.
In publication records we do not credit her as "the Queen of Roumania", nor as "The Queen of Roumania", nor "Queen of Roumania", nor any of those with spelling Romania or Rumania, on which we may expect publishers to differ.

Wanda Gag


Wanda Gag 112469 (52)

EN: "To encourage the use of these stories, Gág translated and illustrated Tales from Grimm in 1936. Two years later she did the same with the Grimm story Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a reaction against the “trivialized, sterilized, and sentimentalized” Disney movie version.[38] Her essay I Like Fairy Tales was published in the March 1939 issue of The Horn Book Magazine. Nothing at All became a Caldecott Honor book for 1942. More Tales from Grimm appeared posthumously in 1947; four of her translated fairy tales were later released individually with new illustrations by Margot Tomes."
