The author, in her translation, has been most careful to preserve the sense of the original text; and at the same time to render the English phraseology simple and pure both in style and tendency.
A very few of the tales have been omitted, as not exactly suited to young English readers.
The author has endeavoured to render these Fairy Tales not only a suitable companion volume to those of Hans Andersen,* but also really acceptable to households, as their title of " House­hold Stories" seems to imply.
