Ballard. Fairy Tales from Far Japan

Today's free book is Fairy Tales from Far Japan by Susan Ballard. For the table of contents, check at the bottom of this post below the image.

The book is available at Internet Archive, Hathi Trust, and Google Books.

Some of the illustrations are wonderful two-page spreads like this one. The illustrations are from "Japanese originals," and I have made a Flickr collection.
