I have this 6 volume set of books in my home
but it's a lot of work ocr'ing them into the site. The above list
of tales served as a selection from these volumes but have now
discovered the set has been scanned into the Internet Archive so now
able to provide the complete set for you to download.
The Wilsonís Tales Project has been created
by a group of volunteers based in Berwick upon Tweed, to stimulate a
revival of interest in the Tales. Constantly republished throughout the
English-speaking world in the 19th century, when the 1934 centenary
edition was reprinted in 1947 , the Tales as a published body of work
were slipping into obscurity.
The Wilsonís Tales Project aims to raise awareness of the original Tales
and provide a platform for contemporary artists of all types to respond
to and re-tell them in modern ways to modern audiences.
This has included live performances by story tellers, musicians singing
the original ballads on which many were based, and stage and radio play
adaptations of the Tales in historic venues.
In addition, we have published our own ĎRevival Editionsí of Tales, each
one retold in modern language and with an accompanying item setting out
the historical accuracy, or otherwise, of the original.
