The most famous and enduring collection of fairy tales in the world, the first volume of Grimm's Fairy Tales was published in 1812. Originally known as Kinder- und Hausmarchen, or Children's and Household Tales in English, these stories form a vivid and fascinating body of work rich in folkloric significance. Often as dark as they are enchanting, these tales are teeming with magic, strikingly sinister villains, and daring quests. Gathered here you'll find old-time favourites like Little Red-Cap, Cinderella, Rumpelstiltskin, and Hansel and Gretel, as well as lesser-known stories. The FLAME TREE COLLECTABLE CLASSICS are chosen to create a delightful and timeless home library. Hardback Deluxe edition, foiled and embossed, with gilded edges.
