Grimms' Fairy Stories by Jacob Grimm, Wilhelm Grimm

From famous stories like "e;Hansel and Grethel"e; and "e;Cinderella"e; to the lesser-known "e;One-Eye, Two-Eyes, and Three-Eyes,"e; this collection of twenty-five fairy tales is full of talking animals, naughty children, wicked parents, magic objects, and honorable heroes and heroines. Collected and revised over the years by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm to represent and preserve German folklore, these tales of morality, humor, and romance offer a glimpse into the very nature of storytelling. Initially published in Germany in 1812, the collection underwent seven editions through 1857. This is an unabridged version of the 1922 edition, including colored Illustrations by John B. Gruelle and sketches by R. Emmett Owen.

About the Author

The German brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm spent years collecting and researching folk tales early in the 19th century. They published Children's and Household Tales in 1812, a collection which became known as Grimm's Fairy Tales. The collection included what are now some of the world's most famous stories, including Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel and Rumpelstiltskin. Wilhelm married in 1825, but Jacob never wed and for most of his life lived in his brother's home. The brothers also began a German historical dictionary, the enormous Deutsches Worterbuch, which ran to 16 volumes when it was finally completed by others in 1954.
