The brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm (1786-1859), were German academics, linguists and cultural researchers, though they were legendary, of course, for their storytelling. They collected and recorded stories from the wide wealth of European folk tales, and their aim was to retell the tells exactly as they heard them. The work of the Brothers Grimm popularized such classics as Cinderella, The Frog Prince, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, and Snow White. Originally titled Children’s and Household Tales, The Complete Grimm’s FairyTales contains the essential bedtime stories for children worldwide for the better part of two centuries.
Accompanied by 40 color plates and 60 black & white illustrations from award-winning English illustrator Arthur Rackham, The Complete Grimm’s FairyTales is the perfect classic edition for your family’s bookshelf.
