Grimms' Fairy Tales by The Brothers Grimm - small hardback (Macmillan Collector's Library Edition)
For the past two centuries these delightful stories, gathered together and written down by brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, have entertained and frightened children and adults alike.
The lives of Tom Thumb, Cinderella, Rumplestiltskin and the Frog Prince form part of our common heritage: they stimulate the imagination and the heart, and linger at the back of our minds for a lifetime. They are funny, disturbing, wise and compassionate. They speak of joy and terror, happiness and revenge, love and violence.This edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales is complete and unabridged, and features Arthur Rackham's masterly illustrations, all hand-coloured by Barbara Frith, one of Britain's leading colourists.
This elegant and diminutive book is from the Macmillan Collector's Library collection. Beautifully produced with gilt edges, a ribbon marker, bespoke illustrated cover and real cloth binding, every Macmillan Collector’s Library hardback adheres to the same high production values. They're small enough to travel with and striking enough to take pride of place on your bookshelf. These much-loved literary classics also make the perfect gift.
