‘Grimm’s Household Tales’ contains fifty of their best-loved stories, edited and translated by Marian Edwardes, and illustrated by R. Anning Bell. It includes the narratives of ‘The Golden Goose’, ‘Briar Rose’, ‘The Robber Bridegroom’, ‘Cinderella’, ‘Tom Thumb’, ‘The Juniper Tree’, ‘The Frog Prince’, ‘Hansel and Gretel’, and many more. Robert Anning Bell (1863 – 1933) was an English artist and designer, famed for his beautiful watercolours, mosaics, and stained-glass works. 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. ‘Grimm’s Household Tales – Illustrated by R. Anning Bell’ is a text to be appreciated by young and old alike; extraordinary for its literary as well as artistic significance. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children’s stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.

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.
