|Pages/Publication Date:||672 / 2013|
From their first publication of Kinder- und Hausmärchen (Children's and Household Tales) two centuries ago, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm approached their endeavor as a literary one, culminating in 1857 with the final collection of 200 fairy tales and 10 children's legends. This fine slipcased edition features the 40 color plates and 62 line drawings that Arthur Rackham produced for the Grimms' tales in 1909, and is based on Margaret Hunt's classic 1884 translation. Alongside favorites like "Hansel and Gretel," "Rapunzel," "Cinderella," and "Snow White," you'll find intriguing titles like "The Water-Nix," "The Wedding of Mrs. Fox," "The Crystal Ball," and "The Devil's Sooty Brother."
