Young Folks' Tales

Total Issues: 546

"It was in September 1906 that James Henderson and Sons began publishing Young Folks Tales, a series very clearly modelled on Aldine's Tales for Little People, with which it remained in sharpest rivalry to the end. The title was derived from Henderson's much earlier earlier Our Young Folk's Weekly Budget (begun 1871), later known as Young Folks. The editor was Roland Qiz (Richard M. H. Quittenton), author of the old Tim Pippin stories, now aged 73 and retired; presumably one of the objects was to provide some congenial and not too strenuous work for the veteran. At the outset, indeed, Young Folks Tales differed in certain important points of editorial policy from both Books for the Bairns and Tales for Little People, but it was soon found necessary to re-adjust this policy in ways that brought the series much more into line with Tales for Little People." (Otto Maurer)

At first reprinted long stories from Our Young Folk's Weekly Budget which had appeared in 1871-75. This policy was abruptly stopped after two years, having reprinted the whole of Quiz's Tim Pippin/Giantland tales, described by Otto Maurer as "fairy tale bloods". Other stories include three "Silverspear" stories by Walter Villiers; S. Holland's "Dick Daring (Fairydom)" and the sequel "Goldyanna"; Alfred R. Philips; "Prince Goldenwings"; and F. C. Thomson's "Funnyland". In order to achieve their boast of "long complete stories" the longer stories which had to be 'serialised' were re-written so each part had a conclusion of sorts. The four or so reprinted illustrations were supplemented (from issue 25 on) by new illustrations (mostly by Gunnis or Ebutt) to bring the number up to a minimum of 14 per issue. The grotesque early illustrations were replaced with more pleasant visions and even the text was rewritten so that previously repulsive-looking giants were no longer repulsive.

From around issue 61 (December 1907) the stories were mostly originals, although the "Prince of Giantland" stories ran for another nine numbers, ending with #77. Half the new stories were written by Roland Quiz himself in a more whimsical style more popular with the parents of the audience. Alternate stories were written by May P. Japp. The cover was replaced in September 1908 (#97) with a design by G. W. Wakefield which had space for an inset illustration from that issue's story. The design was the same until issue 510 (April 1920). For 16 issues (#s 97-112), Young Folks' Tales included colour illustrations, but dropped to 48 pages.

A period of uncertainty began in 1909 with only 7 issues and only 2 in early 1910. From 1909 the un-named editor was probably May P. Japp, who continued to write for the magazine until it was taken over by Amalgamated Press in 1920. The title had stabilised by June 1910, and the Mabel series by A. E. Bull began in July; by September the series had dropped to three tales a month, each of 10,000 words.

Contains complete fairy stories of 10,000 words. Around 1910 the 3 monthly stories concerned Mabel, Prince Pippin and a third irregular yarn. From 1914 a new series of Betty stories started by May Japp and a third regular series of stories was launched. each story related by Uncle Reg to his nephew and neice, Dicky and Kitty. During the war, the pagination was forced down from 48 to 40 (Aug 1916), 32 (Oct 1916), 24 (Oct 1917) and finally 20 pages (Mar 1918). The pagination increased to 32 from June 1919 but dropped again to 24 in March 1920.

The title was taken over by the Amalgamated Press in April 1920 and a new cover introduced in May-1920 ("very inferior and uninspired red and blue" according to Maurer).
