Book Description

26 Sep 2013 Knickerbocker Classics
Originally titled Children’s and Household Tales, The Complete Grimm’s Fairy Tales contains the essential bedtime stories for children worldwide for the better part of two centuries. The Brothers Grimm, Jacob and Wilhelm, were German linguists and cultural researchers who gathered legendary folklore and aimed to collect the stories exactly as they heard them. 2012 marked the 200th anniversary of Grimm’s Fairy Tales, and what better way to celebrate than to include all 211 stories into the Knickerbocker Classic Series?
Featuring all your favorite classics, including “Hansel and Gretel,” “Cinderella,” “The Frog Prince,” “Rapunzel,” “Snow White,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” and dozens more, The Complete Grimm’s Fairy Tales is also accompanied by 40 color plates and 60 black and white illustrations from award-winning English illustrator Arthur Rackham, whose books and prints are now highly sought-after collectibles.
The third title in the Knickerbocker Classic series has 800 pages of classic fairy tales to enjoy and will also feature a full-cloth binding, ribbon marker, and will fit neatly in an elegant slipcase for your personal library collection.

Also includes a selection of stunning color reproductions by the famous illustrator, Arthur Rackham.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales 14 Feb 2014
By M.J.P.
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I will not comment on the fairy tales themselves, only that this edition uses the popular and brilliant 1897 Margaret Hunt translation.

This book is as well constructed as can be. When reviewers say, 'this is the best book I have ever owned', we have no way of knowing if they are paperback buffs or hardcover lovers. Therefore, I will say I am a member of the Folio Society, I love quality bindings, and this is a seriously well-done book. It is clothbound, and the cloth is superb. Very soft, wonderful to touch, and is not fluffy with errant threads. It has trees and the title emblem printed directly on the cloth, which is very beautiful. No cheap glitter, and is very tight. The golden bookmark is excellent. Often you will find thin bookmarks that haven't been stitched at the end, which eventually unravel. This has been stitched, and it will not unravel at all. The book is sewn, and opens flat. The paper used is thinner than average (probably 60 gsm), and is perfectly manageable and opaque. It is well printed, and the illustrations are clear and sharp, as is the font. The colour illustrations are even printed separately on glossy paper for greater clarity.

Finally, what I consider a great achievement, as it is rare, is that the boards used for the book are very sturdy, but the real treat is the slipcase. Those of you who know the Folio Society know that each book comes with a slipcase. I have many Folio books, and many of their limited editions, and they have never produced a slipcase as sturdy as this one from Race Point Publishing. It is exceptionally strong, and will protect your books for many, many years. It also have a marvellous glossy cover featuring trees and titles. My single gripe is that the book protrudes about 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful edition 25 May 2014
By Brida TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
For a long time, I have wanted a complete edition of the tales collected by the Grimm brothers. One of the nicer editions that I owned was by the Folio Society, yet this was not complete. When I saw this edition by Knickerbocker, I instantly knew that I had found what I was looking for.
The book is beautifully presented within a protective slip case. The front cover has a fantastic design of trees, this is also on the slip case. What better cover than that for a collection of fairy tales? This particular edition also benefits from black and white drawings and colour illustrations by Arthur Rackham. As an illustrator of fairy tales, Rackham was one of the best. The only gripe that I have with the production of this collection is that the colour plates do not appear within the story that they come from. However, this is a very small gripe and was often the usual practice of fairy tale collections.
This book would make a lovely gift. Perhaps a word of caution does need to be mentioned for those who would hope to read these tales to their young children; the tales within this collection were not originally intended for very young children. The details of many of these tales are dark and quite gruesome. Therefore, if you do want to read this to younger children, it may be an idea to read through the tales on your own first.
