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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully illustrated volume February 18, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is my first Calla Editions purchase, and I am definitely inspired to buy more after receiving Grimm's Fairy Tales. The paper quality is excellent, the translation is good, and the full color illustrations are wonderful. I know I will treasure this volume and I cannot wait to share it with my young daughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fairy Tales like they should be! October 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fairy tales were told to children to help prepare them for the cold world of reality; no sugar coating and at times, no happy endings because life isn't always a Disney moment. Grimms' Fairy Tales are fabulous, and exactly as I remembered them from my childhood. The lack of illustrations is not a problem since the tales are so beautifully told and have great descriptive passages. If you are a fantasy or sci-fi fan or a lover of horror fiction, and haven't read Grimm's, you need to get this book and go to the source of so many modern tales. 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle format very well done April 19, 2014
By Greg
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I believe reviews of the Kindle format should focus on that rather than the content so that is what I will do here. After suffering through some bad and some horrible inexpensive Kindle classics I was so happy to find this edition. The production quality is very good: the index is usable, there aren't any bad OCR issues, it is a joy to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars heirloom quality, inside and out_AMERICAN PRINTING December 27, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Grim and good! March 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read an original battered copy of Grimm's fairy tales to my daughter every night. I explain how companies like Disney have gotten so many things wrong. This is just another copy of something we will always cherish together. Different medium, same awesomeness. The main stand out is how Grimm's stories are often ended in a quirky way. My personal favorite is:" and they lived happily ever after, until they died." Grim indeed, but I like it.

I love it. It could get a bit violent at times, but at other times, I laughed at the silliness of the brothers Grimm.
