The Catalan language is spoken over a large area covering some 70 000 km2 divided among four states (Andorra, Spain, France and Italy), with a total population of 13.5 million inhabitants. Catalan culture has a large body of literature dating from the medieval period to the present day as well as a rich and extensive tradition of folklore studies beginning in 1853 and continuing without interruption ever since. Catalan folktales were ignored by the Types of the Folktale until the second edition (1961), which included only references to the collection published by Joan Amades (1950). The present Index of Catalan Folktales brings together the work of some seventy collectors working along 150 years and for the first time gives a faithful and complete image of the Catalan contribution to the worlds folklore heritage. Printed Pages: 313.
