Description

This collection of 'Grimm's Fairy Tales' contains forty-four of their best known stories, beautifully illustrated throughout by Monro Orr. It includes the narratives of 'The Golden Bird', 'Tom Thumb', 'Snow White', 'Hansel and Gretel', 'The Valiant Little Tailor, 'Rumpelstiltskin', 'Cinderella', 'The Elves and the Shoemaker', and many more.

The Brothers Grimm are perhaps the best known folklorists of all time. Die Brüder Grimm; Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, lexicographers and authors - who together specialized in collecting and publishing folklore during the nineteenth century. The popularity of their collected tales has endured well; they have been translated into more than 100 languages, and remain in print in the present day. This is a text to be appreciated by young and old alike; extraordinary for its literary as well as artistic significance.

Originally published in 1932, this edition of the 'Grimm's Fairy Tales' is accompanied by the intricate yet highly striking, colour and pen-and-ink illustrations of Monro Orr - a lesser known though immensely skilled Golden Age illustrator. Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of Illustration' in children's literature - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children's stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.
