A while ago, I mentioned the recent discovery of 50 fairy tales that rivaled Grimm, Andersen and Perrault. Franz Xaver von Schönwerth journeyed through Bavaria, recording the fairy tales he heard in the 1850's. They stayed, unread, unknown, in boxes in a German city archive. A few year ago, they were discovered. And in February, they were translated into English.
Here's the book's information.
