Mary Eliza Isabella Frere (1845–1911) was an English author of works regarding India. In 1868 Frere published the first English-language field-collected book of Indian fairy-tales, Old Deccan Days. Frere was born in Gloucestershire, England on 11 August 1845. Her father, Henry Bartle Frere, served in the colonial administration of Bombay since 1834. In 1862 he was appointed Governor of Bombay. Mary Frere published several poems and a play. Her most popular work was "Old Deccan Days; or, Hindoo Fairy Legends, Current in Southern India. Collected From Oral Tradition", printed in 1868. According to Frere's introduction, she began her collection of Indian folklore during long travels with her father. Her only female companion was a local ayah named Anna Liberata de Souza. She was a Christian descendant of the Lingaet caste from the Mahratta country. What started as an idle conversation evolved into a thorough recording and study of Indian culture. German orientologist Max Müller reviewed Frere's collection and wrote that her rendition of Sanskrit originals read like a direct translation of ancient Sanskrit. Frere's father assisted with the editing of the work and wrote an introduction to the first edition of Old Deccan Days.

About the Book Fairy tales, wonder tales, magic tales are a folklore genre taking the form of a short story that typically includes magical beings such as dwarfs, dragons, elves, fairies, giants, gnomes, goblins, griffins, mermaids, talking animals, trolls, unicorns, or witches. Generally, magic or enchantments are involved. Fairy tales are distinguished from legends, are mainly derived from European tradition and folk lore, and are generally children's literature. Mythology has a broader and older pedigree than fairy tales, dating back to ancient times in a number of European, African, Middle Eastern and Asian civilizations. Best known among these to Western audiences are Ancient Greek and Old Norse myths and legends. Generally, these myths and legends describe epic quests, journeys and interactions between human adventurers or heroes and god-like deities.About us Leopold Classic Library has the goal of making available to readers the classic books that have been out of print for decades.

INDIAN FAIRY TALES - 29 children's tales from India: Fairy Tales from Asia's Sub-Continent (SILK ROAD LEGENDS - Eight eBooks containing children's stories ... along the Silk Route PLUS 9th

To assemble this volume of 29 children’ stories from the sub-continent of India, Joseph Jacobs has selected the best from the Jatakas, the Bidpai, the Tales of the Sun, the Baluchi folk-tales, and the folk-tales of Kashmir. In this volume we find stories about Punchkin, the evil magician, and the quaint myth: "How Sun, Moon, and Wind went out to Dinner”, the magic fiddle, the broken pot, the tiger, the Brahman, the Jackal, and many more.In addition, the famous illustrator, John D Batten, has lent his excellent illustration skills to these stories. These stories are brought alive with 44 colour images, each evoking the sights and smells of ancient India. Each story commences with an illuminated drop capital letter, all of which bring added life to the already rich tales.In short, Jacobs has made this book a representative collection of all the fairy tales of India. It is only a further proof that fairy tales are something more than Celtic or Hindoo—they are human. So curl up with a sliver of the Indian sub-continent and lose yourself in a culture and lifestyle of the ancient, Eastern past.Soils and national characters differ, but fairy tales are often the same in plot and incidents, if not in style. Most of the 29 children’s tales in this volume of Indian fairy tales are k...

Old Deccan Tales is a collection of folk tales from India’s rich fairyland where rajas, ranis, rakshas, jackals, magicians, and cobras prevail. Children will enjoy the daring, brave, and wonderful creatures and people that populate the stories as they strive to improve their lives or to save themselves, their friends, and their loved ones from trials most deadly.First published in 1868, this was the first English-language field-collected set of twenty-four traditional stories from the southern Indian state of Maharashtra. The author, Mary Eliza Isabella Frere (1845-1911), traveled to India in 1863 to stay with her father, Sir Bartle Frere, the Governor of Bombay. She became fascinated with Indian culture and transcribed these stories from her ayah (nanny and chaperone) Anna Liberata da Souza, who had been told them by her grandmother. Expressive and detailed, these stories formed part of southern India’s traditional oral culture, at risk at the time of being lost. German orientologist Max Müller (1823–1900) reviewed this collection and wrote that her rendition of Sanskrit originals read like a direct translation of ancient Sanskrit.This is a copy of the third edition, published in 1881, and has a brief nine-page biography of the narrator, Anna Liberata da Souza, describing...
