About the Author

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were born during the 1780s in Hanau, Germany, and studied law at Marburg university. After leaving education, they worked as diplomats and librarians in Kassel. In 1837 they were dismissed from their professorships at the University of Gottingen for refusing to swear allegiance to the new King of Hanover, but were later invited to join the Academy in Berlin, by Frederick William IV of Prussia, where they remained for the rest of their lives. Individually, and as a collaborative team, the brothers were two of the greatest scholars that Germany has produced. Aside from their folktales, they produced many different volumes of research, as well as anthologies of verse and song, and two of Germany's most important linguistic texts, the Deutsche Grammatik (German grammar) and the Deutsche Worterbuch (German dictionary). Wilhelm died in 1859, at the age of 73, and Jacob died in 1863, at the age of 78.

The content of this book is beyond the humble reviewer. Suffice to say these fairy tales pack a lot of meaning into their layers and are worthwhile of the telling and retelling. They should not be forgotten.

What I want to share with potential buyers however is what a pleasant book this is. The book is not large but a small size that fits well in the hands. The pages are printed on paper stock with a pleasant texture and a wonderful smell. If you are a bibliophile then you appreciate the smell of good paper. This book has it. The dust cover holds up well to use and overall I am very pleased with this version of the book. I have a few others I have picked up at second hand sales but this one is my favorite to actually hold and read. Most pleasing experience.

One caveat, the cover says "complete and unabridged." That is wrong. There is at least one politically incorrect fairy tale that has escaped inclusion here. There are other widely available reprints that do include "the miser in the bush" which is itself euphemistically entitled-- see the Barnes and Noble version and perhaps buy it instead if you want a "more complete" and "more unabridged" version for your library. Nevertheless, the small size and gilt edged paper of this volume makes it a wonderful gift perhaps for a younger reader.

This book is very nice. However, I guess I didn't the details--I was expecting a full-size book, and this is about 3 by 6 inches. The print is small, so if you have problems reading small print you might opt for a larger version. Otherwise, nice little book! My 3 year old won't leave it alone. It's like a life-like scholarly piece, just her size.

I originaly bought one of this series because of the price and the quality.I loved them so much I now own every book that is curretly published in this series.I am greatly looking forward to the new additions in Sept.These classics are a great value and quality.It is a nice affordable way for the average person to own a decent set of the classics that otherwise might be a little bit out of our reach.There are a lot more versions in this series available through the Amazon (UK) than there are here in america.But still a great deal.I am proud to say,"yes I not only OWN the classics,but I have read them too."They are just the right size that you can take them pretty much anywhere.The quality assures you that they will not only last you for many years to come,but your future generations as well.Enjoy!

This new edition makes an attractive addition to any library. This is a smaller sized hardcover with golden gilt edges, a silk bookmark sewn in, and cloth covered boards. All in all, a lovely book of surprisingly high quality.

There's not much to say about the Grimm's Fairy Tales, you know them, you love them, they are classics. This gorgeous little volume is an amazing package for that. I gave a bunch of these as gifts to a Fairy Tale club, and I could not be happier about the quality. They are small books, and would be lovely as a gift for an older child. They are illustrated beautifully and the pages are gilt-edged.

I originally bought this product because I'm a big fan of the show Grimm on NBC and I wanted to learn more about the story behind it. I was really impressed with the service that accompanied this purchase. It arrived earlier than the expected delivery date and it was nicely packaged. I read a few stories before bed every night and it's a good way to relax. Not to mention, there are a lot of pictures to accompany the stories. Also, the book is durable. It comes with a paper sleeve over the hardback cover and a built in bookmark to mark your page. It's held up nicely. Worth every penny.
