"The present collection of tales is not diluted fare. In them it is the peasant, the child, the old woman, or even the student who is speaking. I have taken them down as they were related to me, as nearly word for word as possibly, and I have only altered enough to be sure that a fairy tale appears and not a scientific treatise...Many have never appeared, and for those I am indebted to my friend Ts'ao Sung-yeh, a native of Chekiang and a notable folk-lorist. To him I want to express my heartfelt thanks." - from introduction by Eberhard. Translation by Parsons.
