Content The Shoemaker’s Apron:
Notes: Contains 20 Czechoslovak folktales. A Second Book of Czechoslovak Fairy Tales and Folk Tales
Author: Parker Fillmore
Publisher: Harcourt, Brace and Company, New York
A collection of twenty stories, drawn from original sources, and chosen for their variety of subject and range of interest. Here are fairy tales conceived with all the gorgeousness of the Slavic imagination; charming little nursery tales that might be told in nurseries the world over; folk tales illustrative of the wit of a canny people; and rollicking devil tales as surprising to the Anglo-Saxon imagination as they are entertaining.
They are not in any sense academic translations, but vivid renditions by a man who, besides being a student of folklore, was an accomplished story-teller in his own right.
