  • Not for children
  • "Collaboration of two books previously published as: The Virago book of fairy tales (1990) and The second Virago book of fairy tales (1992)"--Publisher's note.
  • Booked as an omnibus edition of the 1990s anthologies because there is no new content after the Publisher's note and Contents list, and no commingling of the 1990s contents (except perhaps Acknowledgements). Stories and their arrangement in named groups match the 6 sections of The Virago Book and 7 sections of The Second Virago Book under their original section headings, now as Parts 1 to 6 and 7 to 13. Illustrations, introductions, and notes are all from 1990 and 1992, with the first introduction the only one written by Carter alone preceding Parts 1 to 13, the stories.
  • Contents (stories only, Parts 1 to 13) -- Brave, Bold and Wilful -- Clever Women, Resourceful Girls and Desperate Stratagems -- Sillies -- Good Girls and Where It Gets Them -- Witches -- Unhappy Families -- Moral Tales -- Strong Minds and Low Cunning -- Up to Something: black arts and dirty tricks -- Beautiful People -- Mothers and Daughters -- Married Women -- Useful Stories Source: OCLC: 61441199 Also viewed as "Part One: Brave, Bold and Wilful", and so on to "Part Thirteen: Useful Stories", at Amazon UK 2017-05-20 as "Look Inside!" the 2015 Kindle edition, ASIN: B0176TC6LI
Synopsis: "Once upon a time fairy tales weren't meant just for children, and neither is Angela Carter's Book of Fairy Tales. This stunning collection contains lyrical tales, bloody tales and hilariously funny and ripely bawdy stories from countries all around the world from the Arctic to Asia and no dippy princesses or soppy fairies. Instead, we have pretty maids and old crones; crafty women and bad girls; enchantresses and midwives; rascal aunts and odd sisters." --blurb, 2015 Kindle ed. at Amazon UK 2017-05-20
