Asbjørnsen og Moes Norske Folke og Huldre-Eventyr. Edition from 1896 (first published circa 1845).
Norwegian Folktales (Norske Folkeeventyr) is a collection of folktales and legends by Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe.
The authors considered the stories remains from Old Norse mythology, and the period of Norwegian greatness before the union with Denmark.
Asbjørnsen and Moe applied the principles of the Brothers Grimm: using a simple linguistic style in place of dialects, while maintaining the original form of the stories. The tales were first translated into English by Sir George Webber Dasent.
