43 That ‘are, or were’ is crucial. There are reasons why Yeats tentatively acknowledges that the sale of chapbooks in Ireland may be a thing of the past, while wanting to assert that it is very much of the present. In the same book, Fairy and Folk Tales of the Irish Peasantry, Yeats also acknowledges some very different sources. Although he mentions the publications of the 20 The Victorian Press and the Fairy Tale Folk-Lore Society, the Folk-Lore Record (established in 1878) and the Folk-Lore Journal (1883), he claimed in private correspondence that they were ‘useless’, and had turned instead to more popular miscellanies.

The New Monthly Magazine published articles on Schiller and Goethe, while Fraser’s Magazine republished a recent translation of Goethe’s ‘The Tale’ in 1832. 36 In fact, Tieck was the subject of numerous reviews in the monthlies and quarterlies throughout the Victorian period. These literary texts were also intimately connected to Romantic constructions of the folk, including the German Volksbuch or chapbook tradition. 38 When writers appropriated the An Alternative History of the Fairy Tale 19 chapbook in a British context, they often continued to move (like Taylor before them) between higher journalism, antiquarianism and commercial children’s fiction.
