When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children's and Household

Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea

that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella"

would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are

familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in

the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each

extensively revised in content and style.

From "The Frog King"

to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold—heroes and heroines are

rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins

prove themselves not so simple after all.


Review


Among the few indispensable, common-property books upon which

Western culture can be founded . . . It will be a mistake if this volume

is merely bought for a child; it should be, first and foremost, an

educational must for adults.
W. H. Auden, The New York Times


Here it is, clear and fine and solid, beautifully and passionately

illustrated, this one book other than the Bible that has truly made

Western man.
P. L. Travers, The New Republic
Everyone

should possess and know Grimm s Fairy Tales one of the great books of

the world and no English-speaking person could do better than this

edition.
Richard Adams, The New York Times Book Review
[A] splendid edition, admirably illustrated.
