The selection is balanced between familiar stories and those which will be fresh discoveries to all but the specialists. many are from rare and unusual sources- some were first written down by anthropologists making studies of primitive societies- others stem from the Brothers Grimm and Andersen and other well-known authorities.

The editor has weighed all existing versions and in each case picked the most readable - many translations are by distinguished authors. The book is divided into nineteen representative world areas: Africa, American, American Indian, Arabian and Turkish, Chinese, Egyptian, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Indian, Irish, Italian, Jewish, Latin American, Russian, Scandinavian, Spanish.

All categories of folk tales are included: Marchen, legends, myths, jests and drolls, fabliaux, fairy tales, fables, tall tales- romantic, and fantastic tales- ghost stories and animal stories- moral tales and mystery stories.
