Title: The Talking Horse Title Record # 38979
Author: F. Anstey
Date: 1891-00-00
Type: COLLECTION
Language: English
Note:
    10 stories
  • Genre generally unknown (Some may be straight, non-speculative humour, or animal stories for small children.)
  • 4 for children Four of the stories appear in the 1891/92 collection under small-size subheadings "A story for children", "A tale for children", and so on. Those four are included in the 1898 collection Paleface and Redskin: And Other Stories for Boys and Girls, selected for "a younger generation than that to which they were first addressed".
  • Anstey states in the 1892 Preface (quotation marks suppressed): "These stories originally appeared in Macmillan's, Longman's, Atalanta, The Cornhill, The Graphic, Aunt Judy's, The Reflector, and Unwin's Christmas Annual, respectively." Those are 8 outlets for 10 stories. As of February 2019, ISFDB has previous publication data for 7 of the 10 stories, which support Anstey's use of "respectively" with reference to the sequence as collected. The outlets for the other three stories can be deduced: Macmillan's -- (none) 1, The Talking Horse Longman's -- 2, 7 Atalanta -- 3, 4 The Cornhill -- 5 The Graphic -- 6 Aunt Judy's -- (none) 8, Tommy's Hero The Reflector -- (none) 9, A Canine Ishmael Unwin's Christmas Annual -- 10 where numerals represent the collection in sequence and titles are given for the un-sourced stories only. None of the three outlets is a "Magazine" series in the database.
