Hamilton Wright Mabie, Edward Everett Hale and William Byron Forbush

Hamilton Wright Mabie, Edward Everett Hale and William Byron Forbush were the editors of a book called Childhood's Favourites and Fairy Stories, The Young Folks Treasury, which brought together stories from more than 50 authors, including Presidents of the USA, poets, essayists, authors, travellers, humorists and more. Most of the stories were not attributed to authors individually, but remain connected through a partial list of authors at the start of the book.
