    after more research.. I found out that this is Asbjornsens and Jorgen Moes first work as a team. it has a rather long introductory poem in the begiining.. no refernece to the author.. but is by Jorgen Moe.. the first edition was 1837.. my copy is marked 1865 which makes it a 3rd edition. Of all things.. last summer i picked up a 1960 Viking edition of Norwegian Folktales... all by Absjornsen and Moe.. translated.. Now I need to find out who the artist is in Nor. the 2 artists referenced in the other book are Erik Werenskiold and Theodor Kittelsen..
