'''Joseph Jacobs''' was a nineteenth century writer who collected English and Celtic fairy tales because -- as the quote shows -- he objected to the monopoly of German and French fairy tales over English children. The best known of these tales is "Literature/JackAndTheBeanstalk", his version being not the oldest known but certainly the oldest known of the most common form. He omitted the moralizing addition that Jack was told that the giant's treasures had been stolen from his own father both because it had not been in the version he had heard as a child, and because he thought children knew it was wrong without being told so in a FairyTale.
