When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their ‘Children’s and Household Tales’ in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as ‘Rapunzel,’ ‘Hansel and Gretel,’ and ‘Cinderella’ would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each extensively revised in content and style. For the very first time, ‘The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm’ makes available in English all 156 stories from the 1812 and 1815 editions. These narrative gems, newly translated and brought together in one beautiful book, are accompanied by sumptuous new illustrations from award-winning artist Andrea Dezs?.
