The "Advertisement-leaf" states that "The former edition of the "Danish Fairy Legends and Tales", published in 1846, was, eith the exception of a few stories rendered by mrs. Howitt, thefirst English translation of andersen's "Eventyr". That edition however contained only fourteen tales, while the present numbers forty-five, being in fact the only complete collection printed in this country. It may be well also, to state that the translation has been made from the original Danish, not from any numerous versions which have appeared in Germany." The translator is Caroline Peachey.
