Perhaps the best "Remus" is "The Complete Tales of Uncle Remus," compiled by Richard Chase, Houghton Mifflin Company, 1955, but even this 'better' more recent edition leaves out some material, including introductions to succeeding volumes, and some of the material itself. Somewhere I have noted this in a thread, but I am not sure which one. Introductions to the volumes may be found at http://xroads.virginia.edu/~UG97/remus/preface.html. Unfortunately, xroads has put only selections from his stories on line.

"Legends of the Old Plantation" is the original title of the first volume, cited above as "Uncle Remus, His Songs and His Sayings."

His second volume, "Nights ...." is on line at http://www.archive.org/details/nightsuncleremus00harrich
I haven't looked further.
