The Grimm brothers had an ambitious plan to collect the folk tales of Germany, which they considered in danger of being forgotten. They managed to find and record nearly 300 of the tales, many of which have become classics told to most children. This handsome edition offers over 50 of the favorites, illustrated in back and white by Arthur Rackham.
