I hope you are all having a wonderful Friday evening. In my usual rummaging for material I came across a very interesting book by Yei Theodora Ozaki.

The book published in 1909 is a very interesting 'Fairy Tale' piece of ancient lore and imagination. I really enjoyed reading it and it has been posted online as a free download (the copyright has since expired).

You can find it here:

My I suggest downloading the PDF? It also prints out very well.

Enjoy!
Alex

Thanks! Very Happy I downloaded it in B/W PDF. Later on, I'll go and read it.

Does the PDF version require a language plug in?

Wouldn't it be faster to download it and see if it displays right, rather than asking here?

Originally I had downloaded it before asking, though there was a problem where none of the documents were displaying properly. There didn’t seem to be a problem with my reader so I posed the question. My apologies if it put you out as it seems to have.

In order to read a PDF document, you need to download the Acrobat PDF reader. Usually there will be a pop-up before the download that asks about the presence of the Acrobat PDF reader. If you don't have it, you can download the Acrobat program into your computer at no charge. Then you can download PDF documents and read them.
