Folk-Lore and Legends. RUSSIAN AND POLISH. The collection of tales in this little volume are selections made from the Russian chap-book literature, and from the works of various Russian and Polish collectors of Folklore. There is little doubt that the chap-book tales are of foreign origin, but since Russia and Poland are the countries in which these tales have found their home, and since they have been adapted by the people as to incorporate the national customs and lore, they appear to belong properly to the present volume. Originally published in 1890 Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
