Jewish Fairy Tales and Fables by Aunt Naomi (Gertrude Landa) (1881 - 1941).


Gertrude Landa or rather, Hannah Gittel (Annie Gertrude) Landa nee Gordon wrote under the pen-name of Aunt Naomi. The stories that she relates in this book are mostly based on parables from the Talmud and the Midrash, those compilations of ancient teachings, interpretations and learning which in importance are second only to the Bible (Old Testament) in Jewish religious tradition.

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Noel,
Can you find another copy of this book? This one does not have a printed publication date. That makes the PD status suspect. :(

Hello Linny,

I wonder if this helps, In the Preface of her book (Jewish Fairy Tales and Legends) Published in 1919 (https://archive.org/details/jewishfairytales00land3/page/n7/mode/2up) she says "The very cordial welcome given to my earlier volume of "Jewish Fairy Tales and Fables" has prompted me to draw furthur upon ...etc"
Also, in The Hathi Trust catalogue, the book is stated to have been published in 1908 (https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Search/Home?lookfor=%22Landa,%20Gertrude.%22&type=author&inst=)

However if neither of these sources are of any use, there is an American edition also to be found in the Internet Archive with a publication date of 1915 but again this is not actually printed in the book but there is also a Library of Congress volume available of the same edition also marked 1915

I would prefer to read from the First UK (1908) edition but quite prepared to use the (1915) American edition if that is necessary.

Regards, Noel

Fairy Tales and Legends is indeed PD: https://archive.org/details/jewishfairytales00land3/page/n7/mode/2up

Unfortunately, the Hathi Trust version of Fairy Tales and Fables has a handwritten copyright instead of a printed date. While it originally may have been published prior to Legends we need to know that the copy you are reading from is PD.

Do you have a link to the Library of Congress volume?

Hi,
On the page for the Library of Congress volume, it states that:
Rights & Access
The books in this collection are in the public domain and are free to use and reuse.
Credit Line: Library of Congress
Does that help?

I just found a book by another author published in 1917 which actually has a printed advert in the front for my proposed book!

Noel,
No trouble at all. I'm very glad to see this one get into the catalog. :9:

Once you confirm you can get into the MW I'll move you and Lynda over to going solo.

Hi.
Thanks! No problems with the MW.
I must have miscounted my chapters though and had to add another section, perhaps you will just check it is OK.
