    A complete set of The Folio Society edition of Andrew Lang’s Rainbow Fairy Books. Lang’s original fairy books were compilations of fairy tales from around the world, many appearing in English for the first time, and were extremely influential on the English imagination in the late 19th and early 20th century. This set is one of The Folio Society’s most sought after productions with the later volumes in the series printed in smaller numbers, and with all volumes except Blue out of print and difficult to obtain.
