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 Dezsö. From "The Frog King" to "The Golden Key," wondrous worlds unfold—heroes and heroines are rewarded, weaker animals triumph over the strong, and simple bumpkins prove themselves not so simple after all. Esteemed fairy tale scholar Jack Zipes offers accessible translations that retain the spare description and engaging storytelling style of the originals. Indeed, this is what makes the tales from the 1812 and 1815 editions unique—they reflect diverse voices, rooted in oral traditions, that are absent from the Grimms' later, more embellished collections of tales. Zipes's introduction gives important historical context, and the book includes the Grimms' prefaces and notes. A delight to read, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm presents these peerless stories to a whole new generation of readers.

No library's complete without the classics! This new, enhanced leather-bound edition collects the legendary fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. They are the stories we've known since we were children. Rapunzel. Hansel and Gretel. Cinderella. Sleeping Beauty. But the works originally collected by the Brothers Grimm in the early 1800s are not necessarily the versions we heard before bedtime. They're darker and often don't end very happily--but they're often far more interesting. This elegant edition of Grimm's Complete Fairy Tales includes all our cherished favorites--Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, Little Red Cap, and many more--in their original versions. With specially designed end papers, a genuine leather cover, and other enhancements, it's the perfect gift for anyone looking to build a complete home library. Many of these tales begin with the familiar refrain of “once upon a time”--but they end with something unexpected and fascinating!

This carefully crafted ebook: “The Complete Brothers Grimm's Fairy Tales (over 200 fairy tales and legends)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Jacob Grimm (1785-1863) and his brother Wilhelm (1786-1859) were philologists and folklorists. The brothers rediscovered a host of fairy tales, telling of princes and princesses in their castles, witches in their towers and forests, of giants and dwarfs, of fabulous animals and dark deeds. Together with the well-known tales of «Rapunzel», «The Goose-Girl», «Sleeping Beauty», «Hansel and Gretel» and «Snow White» there are the darker tales such as «Death's Messengers» which deserve to be better known, and which will appeal not only to all who are interested in the history of folklore, but also to all those who simply love good storytelling. The two brothers wished to preserve their German folklore in a collection of tales that they believed had been handed down for generations. When they began in 1812 they had just 86 stories that rather harshly reflected the difficult life of European peasantry. Subsequent editions would grow to hold over 200 tales. As time passed, the Brothers Grimm found that their collection of fairy tales, with all of its royalty, magical creatures, and brave adventures, entranced those who read them. This compilation of fairy tales which includes the complete canon of over 200 tales has become a beloved set of classical stories the world over. Content: THE GOLDEN BIRD, HANS IN LUCK, JORINDA AND JORINDEL, THE TRAVELLING MUSICIANS, OLD SULTAN, THE STRAW, THE COAL, AND THE BEAN, BRIAR ROSE, THE DOG AND THE SPARROW, THE TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES, THE FISHERMAN AND HIS WIFE, THE WILLOW-WREN AND THE BEAR, THE FROG-PRINCE, CAT AND MOUSE IN PARTNERSHIP, THE GOOSE-GIRL, THE ADVENTURES OF CHANTICLEER AND PARTLET, RAPUNZEL, FUNDEVOGEL, THE VALIANT LITTLE TAILOR, HANSEL AND GRETEL, THE MOUSE, THE BIRD, AND THE SAUSAGE, MOTHER HOLLE, LITTLE RED-CAP [LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD], THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM, TOM THUMB, RUMPELSTILTSKIN, CLEVER GRETEL, THE OLD MAN AND HIS GRANDSON, THE LITTLE PEASANT, FREDERICK AND CATHERINE, SWEETHEART ROLAND, SNOWDROP, THE PINK, CLEVER ELSIE, THE MISER IN THE BUSH, ASHPUTTEL, THE WHITE SNAKE, THE WOLF AND THE SEVEN LITTLE KIDS, THE QUEEN BEE, THE ELVES AND THE SHOEMAKER, THE JUNIPER-TREE, THE TURNIP, CLEVER HANS, THE THREE LANGUAGES, THE FOX AND THE CAT, THE FOUR CLEVER BROTHERS, LILY AND THE LION, THE FOX AND THE HORSE, THE BLUE LIGHT, THE RAVEN, THE GOLDEN GOOSE, THE WATER OF LIFE, THE TWELVE HUNTSMEN, THE KING OF THE GOLDEN MOUNTAIN, DOCTOR KNOWALL, THE SEVEN RAVENS, THE WEDDING OF MRS FOX, THE SALAD, THE STORY OF THE YOUTH WHO WENT FORTH TO LEARN WHAT FEAR WAS, KING GRISLY-BEARD, IRON HANS, CAT-SKIN, SNOW-WHITE AND ROSE-RED etc.
