The Arabian Nights Andrew Lang – One Thousand and One Nights is a collection of stories collected over many centuries by various authors, translators and scholars in various countries across the Middle East and South Asia. These collections of tales trace their roots back to ancient Arabia and Yemen, ancient Indian literature and Persian literature, ancient Egyptian literature and Mesopotamian mythology, ancient Syria and Asia Minor, and medieval Arabic folk stories from the Caliphate era. Though the oldest Arabic manuscript dates from the fourteenth century, scholarship generally dates the collection's genesis to somewhere between AD 800900.

The Violet Fairy Book Andrew Lang – The Editor makes a move to rehash what he has frequently said previously, that he isn't the writer of the tales in the Fairy Books; that he didn't develop them 'out of his own head.' He is acquainted with being asked, by women, 'Have you composed whatever else with the exception of the Fairy Books?' He is then obliged to clarify that he has NOT composed the Fairy Books, be that as it may, save these, has composed nearly all the other things, with the exception of psalms, messages, and sensational works. The tales in this Violet Fairy Book, as in all the others of the series, have been interpreted out of the mainstream conventional stories in a number of various dialects. These accounts are pretty much as old as anything that men have developed. They are described by exposed savage ladies to bare savage kids.
