About the Author

Arthur Rackham (1867–1939) was an English artist and a leading figure in the early 20th century's Golden Age of Illustration. He interpreted scenes from fairy tales, opera, and Shakespearean comedy with whimsical and romantic images that continue to enchant children and adults alike. 

Born in Dublin in 1872, Rene Bull began working as an illustrator while still in his teens. His travels to the Middle East endowed him with an intimate knowledge of Arab costume and customs, as reflected in his greatest works, Arabian Nights and Omar Khayyam's Rubaiyat.

Twin brothers Edward and Maurice Detmold were born in 1883 and made their publishing debut at the age of 16 with Pictures from Birdland. Both excelled at depictions of animals, and they worked in collaboration until Maurice's tragic early death.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My first Calla Edition was Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edgar Allan Poe. It is a work of extraordinary beauty and I've been collecting the various titles issued by Calla Editions since. The quality of each Calla Edition is superior in terms of binding, paper quality, the illustrations, and content. These Calla Editions are a must-have in every collector's library and will bring great pleasure to bibliophiles.
This 2010 Calla Edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales contains a selection of stories from The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm, translated by Mrs. Edgar Lucas, and which was originally published by Doubleday, Page, and Co., New York, in 1909. There are 40 full-color plates by Arthur Rackham as well as 28 black-and-white illustrations. Each illustration is listed at the beginning of the book with page references.

I was shopping for a volume of fairy tales for my 8 year old daughter. First I was drawn towards a Barnes and Noble series, only to discover that it is printed and bound in China! I take some offense to this because I'm an unemployed American printer! That's when I came back to Amazon, where I do much of my online purchasing, and found this Calla Edition! Excellence in every aspect! Printed in the US of A by Courier Corporation... I know them well, and they are the best at what they do! Oh, and the price... I think it is an exceptional value. Many, many illustrations... you won't be disappointed!

Larger font allow for smaller humans to read, but I personally enjoy this book so far. The drawings that accompany the stories are cute, and seem as original as the tales. Plenty of stories and fairy tales I have never heard of are in here as well. I love the lessons to be learned from each. Brings back those wonderful days of sneaking in children books to read before bed...as a child of course.

Love all of the illustrations. They are breathtaking! I was looking for a collection of Grimm's fairy tales with pictures to go along with the stories and I found it. Very happy with my purchase.

When I was a child, I really treasured my bound/illustrated copy of the Grimm's Fairy Tales. They are absolute classics for kids! When my friends all started getting pregnant, I was hard pressed to come up with a creative and interesting baby gift for all of them - I think I have found my go-to item for first-born children!

There were several different publications offering these, but I chose this one because of the nice, yet antique-ish, look of the book and illustrations. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that there could have been a few more pictures or the book could have been offered in a leather- instead of canvas- binding. But the recipients really seemed to appreciate its beauty and were completely happy with it.

I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a nice children's gift, people who are excited to read to their children, anyone who enjoys German culture, and people who like hard-covered books.

I'm a big fan of Calla Editions right now. They seem to be the best in quality for a decent price right now (sorry folio, but so far they are beating you out). This is my second edition and I have to say they are sleek and gorgeous. I'm more of the deckle-edged "older" style, but these are done so well with such vivid illustrations and great binding that I really don't mind.

I love the classic grimm fairytales and this book was no disappointment. It was everything I was hoping for. I love how it has a number of illustrations throughout. The pages are nice and thick. I can tell it's a nicely made book and my daughter and hers will enjoy it for years to come!
