Ellen C. Babbitt published Jataka Tales in 1912 and More Jataka Tales in 1922. Babbitt used the translations created by Professor E. B. Cowell, professor of Sanskrit in the University of Cambridge and his "Guild of Jataka Translators" as source material for her retellings.
- More Jataka Tales (1922)
- Jataka tales are ancient folklore which originated in India. Ellen C. Babbitt collected and retold these stories in two volumes, Jataka Tales (1912) and More Jataka Tales (1922). Babbitt's versions were based on translations created by Professor E. B. Cowell, professor of Sanskrit in the University of Cambridge, and his team between 1895 and 1907. Some of the Jataka tales may have been later ascribed to Aesop.
