Grimms' Fairy Tales
Available in Stock
First published in Germany in 1812 the Household Tales, with learned footnotes and commentary, were not an overnight success. Over the years editions became less academic, there were less threatening, illustrated versions for children - and the book became one of the world's most enduring bestsellers. This English edition, first published in the early 1900s, has illustrations by Arthur Rackham, hand-coloured by Barbara Frith.
