Description
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 tales 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 title Children's and Household Tales, The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales 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 Fairy Tales is the perfect classic edition for your family's bookshelf.

Complete and unabridged this elegantly designed cloth-bound harcover features a slipcase and ribbon marker, as well as a comprehensive introduction providing the reader with enlightening information on the brothers' lives and works.

Story time to the next level
What a great compilation of history, fantasy grandmothers' stories. The mixture of 1 page stories as well as those that are longer gives the story teller many options. Was a little disappointed with the lack of color in the illustrations. They are dark but then some of the stories have dark lessons also. Must also remember that these stories may have only been told in the evening beside a fire or by candle light. As you read some of them you can almost hear the grandmother crone's voice or the elder man's low but shaky pitch. Great book to have in a personal library.

Beautiful volume!
This is a beautiful book! I had something very much like this when I was a child. The color plates and ink drawings are full-page renderings and ALL of the fairy tales are included. It comes in a printed volume cover and looks so nice on the bookshelf. I would highly recommend as a gift to yourself! Very happy with this purchase.
