Jacob Grimm, Wilhelm Grimm - Author

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.

Full of cunning witches, dragon hoards and dwarves spinning straw into gold, the tales of the Brothers Grimm are some of the most recognised and best-loved fairy tales of all time. During the early 19th century, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm collected the stories of German folk lore in an act of romantic nationalism, believing these tales were the best way to preserve the heritage of the country. Now the reach of these stories extends well beyond the brothers' original intention, having influenced literature across the world for more than two centuries. This treasury includes 45 fairy tales, including both well-known stories such as 'Hansel and Grethel' and 'Rapunzel', as well as lesser-known works such as 'The Hare the Hedgehog' and 'The Iron Stove'. Presented here in a beautiful cloth-bound edition, Grimm's Fairy Tales is a collection is a treasure for both the young and old.
