Er enth"alt neben den bekannte M"archen “Kalif Storch” und “Der kleine Muck” “Die Geschichte von dem Gespensterschiff”, “Die Geschichte von der abgehauenen Hand”, “Die Errettung Fatmes” und “Das M"archen vom falschen Prinzen”.
“Das Gespensterschiff” und “Die abgehauene Hand” sind nach heutigem Empfinden für Kinder nicht geeignet.

I did not count them, but there were ever so many: Aladdin, and Ali Baba, and Fortunatis, and Jack-the-Giant-Killer, and Doctor Faustus, and Bidpai, and Cinderella, and Patient Grizzle, and the Soldier who cheated the Devil, and St. George, and Hans in Luck, who traded and traded his lump of gold until he had only an empty churn to show for it; and there was Sindbad the Sailor, and the Tailor who killed seven flies at a blow, and the Fisherman who fished up the Genie, and the Lad who fiddled for the Jew in the bramble-bu...
