Indian Fairy Tales, by Joseph JacobsThis book is a representative collection of the Fairy Tales of India, by Joseph Jacobs. The majority of the tales in this book have been known in the West in some form or other, and the problem arises how to account for their simultaneous existence in farthest West and East. Some have declared that India is the Home of the Fairy Tale, and that all European fairy tales have been brought from thence by Crusaders, by Mongol missionaries, by Gipsies, by Jews, by traders, by travellers. The question is still before the courts, and one can only deal with it as an advocate. So far as the children of Europe have their fairy stories in common, these—and they form more than a third of the whole—are derived from India. In particular, the majority of the Drolls or comic tales and jingles can be traced, without much difficulty, back to the Indian peninsula.

(Ce livre est une collection représentative des contes de fées de l’Inde, par Joseph Jacobs. La majorité des contes de ce livre ont été connus en Occident sous une forme ou une autre, et le problème se pose comment rendre compte de leur existence simultanée dans le plus éloigné Ouest et Est. Certains ont déclaré que l’Inde est la maison des contes de fées, et que tous les contes de fées européens ont été amenés de là par les croisés, les missionnaires mongoles, les bohémiens, les juifs, les commerçants, les voyageurs. La question est toujours disputée, et on ne peut le traiter comme un avocat. Pour autant que les enfants d’Europe ont leurs contes de fées en commun, ceux-ci – et ils forment plus d’un tiers de l’ensemble – sont dérivés de l’Inde. En particulier, la majorité des drolls ou des contes et des jingles comiques peut être tracée, sans grande difficulté, de retour à la péninsule indienne.)
