Norwegian Folktales

Norwegian Folktales by Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Engebretsen Moe

This is from the Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library series. I mention this because this is in fact a selected group of their fairy tales, from differing sources -- the table of contents carefully notes who collected what -- and another collection might have another selection.  They are, after all, to Norwegian tales what the Grimms were to German.
