This edition of the Grimm’s Fairy Tales contains sixty-eight of their classic stories, beautifully illustrated with the black-and-white drawings of Ruth Moorwood and a frontispiece by Harry Rountree. It includes the narratives of ‘The Golden Bird’, ‘Tom Thumb’, ‘Rapunzel’, ‘Snow-Drop’, ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’, ‘Hansel and Gretel’, ‘Rumpelstiltskin’, ‘Ashputtel’, and many more. Harry Rountree (1878 – 1950), was a prolific illustrator, originally from New Zealand, known for his frequent and fruitful collaborations with other artists – such as this joint venture, with Ruth Moorwood. The Brothers Grimm are perhaps the best known folklorists of all time. Die Brüder Grimm; Jacob (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786–1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, lexicographers and authors – who together specialized in collecting and publishing folklore during the nineteenth century. The popularity of their collected tales has endured well; they have been translated into more than 100 languages, and remain in print in the present day. This is a text to be appreciated by young and old alike; extraordinary for its literary as well as artistic significance.

About the Author

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, aka the Brothers Grimm, set out to collect stories in the early 1800s, their goal was not to entertain children but to preserve Germanic folklore. Once the brothers saw how the stories entranced young readers, however, they began softening some of the harsher aspects to make them more suitable for children. A cornerstone of Western culture since the early 1800s, Grimm’s Fairy Tales is now one of the world’s most beloved books.
