A few stories seem to have no point or plot at all, or added endings, although "Catherine and Frederick" is only a little worse here than in other versions I have found. Most of the good stories are repeated in better collections.
Only notable bits:
"Bearskin" is one that isn't in every collection of Grimm's Tales, and I found it enjoyable. I prefer the stories like this and "The Six Swans", in which the day is won through persistence and cleverness. Also, he cheats the devil, which is always a nice touch. Many of these stories are solved through nothing more interesting than dumb luck.
This version of "The Frog Prince" has a very beautiful beginning, but the rest of the story is disjointed, uninspired, and annoying.
Overall it was very uneven, and next time I'll search Project Gutenberg for the full tales.
