Bookplates of Abel Berland, an important collector.

Andrew Lang FBA (1844 – 1912) was a Scottish poet, novelist, literary critic, and contributor to the field of anthropology. He is best known as a collector of folk and fairy tales. This summarizing and fascinating study by Lang--generally acknowledged as the "Fairy Tale & Folklore King" of his British era--has many excellent insights and appears to be something like the author-scholar's "Golden Bough."
