Regarding the fairy tales: The Grimm brothers collected fairy tales from all over the Germanies and published the collected stories in 1812. Historically and culturally this is very important because we have a glimpse into an oral tradition back when oral tradition was alive and well. Many are surprised to find that the stories aren't Disney rated.

Jacob Grimm, Wilhelm Grimm, Arthur Rackham. 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.

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.
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.
I was looking for a good edition of the Grimm's stories for my library that uses the old language and hasn't been translated to read like modern English, and i was so happy to find that this has the old quirky word usage that characterize stories that come from European culture and are very old and unsophisticated like the plain people who told them to the Grimm's brothers. For me it is akin to the 1950's habit of tearing out old, high tin ceilings and installing dropped foam board ceilings in their place!

The further enjoyment of the book it that the cover is beautifully bound and the book has a strong, compact feel to it, i think it is leather-bound, with a picture of two owls in a forest leather-tooled into the cover. Also it it the complete collection of Grimm's Stories, with all 201 stories and 10 legends, so that should keep you busy with stories for a long time! One last thing there is a wonderful introduction in the beginning about the history of the Grimms Brothers and the historical time and background of these stories, their impact on the world and other fascinating information as well as a full page b & w picture of the Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm, the brothers who collected the stories. I love the Grimms tales, and how interesting that the the tales can be so Grimm, just like the Brothers real surname! I feel i have found an absolute treasure in this volumn one i will always keep, and if you are looking for a good Grimms Brothers volume this one really has everything+!.
