Reader's note

This volume is divided into seven parts. First we have Tales of Children, published about the year 1872, and reminding us of the time when Tolstoy was absorbed in efforts to educate the peasant children. This section of the book contains the two stories which, of all that he has written, Tolstoy likes best. Part two contains a series of stories written for the people; and among them What Men Live By, probably the most widely circulated of all Tolstoy's tales. Part three contains three short stories written to help the sale of cheap reproductions of some good drawings. In part five we have a series of Russian folk tales. Part six gives two adaptations from French, which have appeared in no previous English editions of Tolstoy’s works. Part seven consists of stories Tolstoy contributed in aid of the News left destitute after the massacres and outrages in Kishinev and elsewhere in Russia in 1903.
