The Lilac Fairy Book is the last of Andrew Lang’s twelve Fairy Books, which were published between 1889 and 1910. A collection of fairy and folk tales from around the world, The Lilac Fairy Book includes “The False Prince and the True,” “The Three Crowns,” and “The Lady of the Fountain.”
Assembling and translating for the first time many now-famous tales, Andrew Lang’s Fairy Books have served as inspiration for many writers including J. R. R. Tolkien, and contributed to the growth in popularity of fairy tales as a literary genre.
