Jacob Ludwig Carol Grimm (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Carl Grimm (1786-1859), universally known as 'the brothers Grimm', were born in the German state of Hesse. They published two volumes in 1812 and 1814 which include some of the best-known fairy tales of all time, such as 'Tom Thumb' and 'The Elves and the Shoemaker'.

Dear children, I am going away into the wood; be on your guard against the Wolf, for if he comes here, he will eat you all up-skin, hair, and all. (page 26).

Jacob and wilhelm grimm. Introduced by. Matt haig. I mean, if you were like that you’d be holding a book called The Boring Book of Realistic Facts That Happen Every Day, instead of one called Grimms’ Fairy Tales. Illustrations by GEORGE CRUIKSHANK. Published by the Penguin Group. Penguin Books Ltd, 80 Strand, London WC2R 0RL, England. Because here’s the truth. These stories aren’t realistic.

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were two brothers born in Frankfurt in the old German kingdom of Hesse. The scholarly foot notes were completely eliminated, making the book just a collection of fairy tales that a child might enjoy. They studied law, but were passionately interested in folklore. The present collection contains some of the most famous and well loved fairy tales that generations of children have enjoyed. The universal themes of fairy tales which include the triumph of good over evil, courage, common-sense, humility, love, the downfall of pride, greed, envy and laziness all find voice in the characters of Grimms' Fairy Tales.

Jacob Grimm, Brothers Grimm. From classics such as 'The Frog-Prince' and 'Hansel and Grettel' to the delights of 'Ashputtel' or 'Old Sultan', all hold a timeless magic which has enthralled children for centuries.

Jacob Grimm, Wilhelm Grimm. Originally titled Children's and Household Tales, The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales contains the essential bedtime stories for children worldwide for the better part of two centuries. 2012 marked the 200th anniversary of Grimm's Fairy Tales, and what better way to celebrate than to include all 211 stories into the Knickerbocker Classic Series?

Excerpt from Grimm's Fairy TalesThey are fanciful or humorous. They have they quality, rare in fairy tales, of actually illustrating their text. This will mean added pleasure to the children. Rie Cramer's little black and white headings are particularly pretty and grateful in outline.The tales are presented here in their original form, with nothing left out of child-heartedness, humor, poetic feeling, and delicate sentiment and fancy. Indeed, it is all here - the poesy and purity which those profound and child-loving scholars, the Brothers Grimm, retained in the old folk-tales which, with so much pains, they gathered largely from among the peasant-folk themselves.And the Brother explained, in their preface, that they had planned the volume as an educational book as well as one for scholars; for which reason they had eliminated everything which they feared might harm the children. But since the bothers issued their book, about a hundred years ago, educational requirements of what is ethically best for children have materially advanced. Therefore, in this book, a few other parts unsuitable for children have been omitted.So now this volume of Grimm's Fairy Tales is offered to our American boys and girls; and may they have continued delight in the beautiful old folk-fictions, which have come down to us from the fresh and sparkling meadows and woods of ancient days.Fathers and mothers, too, will enjoy reading the tales aloud and sharing with the children the humor and the deep but simple ethical truths so tenderly and poetically set forth therein.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

This is a seriously beautiful book. As a huge book lover, just looking at it and paging through it makes me happy. As you can see from the pictures, it comes with gold dipped pages and a red ribbon book marker. My boyfriend commented that it looks just like a Bible.

I attached some photos of the Contents, just in case anyone was wondering what specific stories are included (although I do believe it's supposed to be a complete set--but I don't know Grimm's stories well enough to confirm that).

Hope my pics have helped! :)

I don't know if this is unique to the Kindle version, but this edition is truly a travesty.

I bought it a while ago and have been reading the stories whenever I get some free time. From the start I had the feeling that these stories were a little "off". The brothers Grimm are known to be somewhat somber, I get that, but they also portray humor and subtle nuances in their writing. However, this English version reads as if it had been stripped of any wit before publication.

A few days ago, I finally discovered the main problem: the translation is just awful. I really didn't want to believe it, I truly wanted to think this book was a faithful representation of the original stories, and it was just a case of me not "getting it". Then I read the story titled "Clever Hans" and it was such a bizarre experience, that I had to look up how come it ended the way it did. That's when I discovered this gem, which is illustrative of the problem that affects the whole book. If you go to Wikipedia and read the plot of "Clever Hans", you learn the premise of the tale, how it is supposed to be humorous and the ending should read something like:

"And that's how Hans lost his bride."

However, after reading this book's version of the tale, it read like a bad story, not humorous at all, and it ended with the line:

"Then Grethel became angry, tore herself loose and ran away, and became the bride of Hans."

Clearly, the translation went as far as to completely change the meaning of the punchline of the story. Now I know I have been reading a bad imitation of the Grimm brothers work all this time. Nothing left to do but to look for a better rendition of their work.

Best West
Amazon has merged reviews of multiple editions, here.

This cloth hardcover volume is 8.1 x 10.1 INCHES, 320 PAGES, with 27 STORIES (versus the flexcover 5.4 x 7.7 INCHES, 192 PAGES, 14 STORIES The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm that, at roughly 1/3rd the price and practically identical-looking in online images, people mistake for being the same!).

It is as durable as it is displayable -- as complete as any "coffee table" book of Grimms' most popular classics could be, with page after page of brilliant illustrations by esteemed artists (whose biographies are provided). That's Taschen: its books are worth every (*pretty*) penny.

I cannot speak to this translation versus other English ones (note: the cover is not in German as Amazon displays), but there is a Translator's Note at the end. An index, too. And at the beginning, an introduction to Grimms', for the uninitiated.

Beautifully presented and told, it is an anthology for all ages to cherish.

A beautiful book especially for the price. I love that the intro includes some information on the brothers and short stories. There are 201 stories and 10 legends included in this book.

The book itself has gold pages, red and gold highlights on the front, embossing and a red ribbon bookmark.

The book came on time & looks exactly as shown. It has many tales I did t realize existed. I bought this to use while writing a report on the gruesome truth behind the tales we love. These are NOT books for children. As an adult I appreciate the original stories. However, there are still fairly watered down from the true original tales. As I was using this in my works cited I found I had to search for more sources seeing how this book wasn’t true originals.

Great book for all the fans of classic fairy tales, me included. The book is of course in Old English grammar, which is grand. And it is printed in the U.K. so you'll see a lot of 'single quotations' rather than "double quotations".

The only con is the stories aren't the "original" version per se. The Frog Prince for example turned human again by sleeping in the princess's pillow, but the original version, the prince turns human again after the princess violently throws him against the wall. But I guess it's for the kids to read more so than adults. Still worth getting. I'm still pleased.
