Reader's note

These Tales were in fact much more the work of Mary than of her brother Charles Lamb (who undertook perhaps seven of the twenty adaptations) and were written originally for Godwin's Juvenile Library, one of the very earliest series of books specially written for children to have been published in any country. In their rather apologetic introduction the editors confessed that 'it was was no easy matter to give the histories of men and women in terms familiar to the apprehension of young minds' They need not have apologised - for they managed admirably, and the charm of their stories has persisted as favourite children's reading over a century and a half!
