This anthology of folk and fairy tales brings together 52 stories from a range of historical and geographic traditions. Sections group tales together by theme or juxtapose variations of individual tales, inviting comparison and analysis across cultures and genres. An accessible section of critical selections provides a foundation for readers to analyze, debate, and interpret the tales for themselves. An expanded introduction by the editors looks at the history of folk and fairy tales and distinguishes between the genres, while revised introductions to individual sections provide more detailed history of particular tellers and tales, paying increased attention to the background and cultural origin of each tale. A selection of illustrations from editions of classic tales from the 19th to the 21st centuries is also included. This new edition includes a larger selection of critical articles, more modern and cross-cultural variations on classic tales, and an expanded discussion of illustrations.

“Mirror, mirror on the wall, Who in this land is fairest of all?” Undoubtedly the most famous of the Brothers Grimm fairytales, Snow White is the story of a girl—as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as ebony—who is the victim of her mother, the jealous Queen, but with the help of seven dwarfs she just might be able to live happily ever after... In these new translations, the original and final versions of Snow White—from the first and seventh editions of the Brothers Grimm’s Children's and Household Tales—are brought to life for an English readership to enjoy one after the other, complete with black and white illustrations by Franz Jüttner. [Folklore Type: ATU-709 (Snow White)]

The Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales By The Brothers Grimm The first volume of the first edition was published in 1812, containing 86 stories; the second volume of 70 stories followed in 1815. For the second edition, two volumes were issued in 1819 and a third in 1822, totalling 170 tales. The third edition appeared in 1837; fourth edition, 1840; fifth edition, 1843; sixth edition, 1850; seventh edition, 1857. Stories were added, and also subtracted, from one edition to the next, until the seventh held 211 tales. All editions were extensively illustrated, first by Philipp Grot Johann and, after his death in 1892, by German illustrator Robert Leinweber. The first volumes were much criticized because, although they were called "Children's Tales", they were not regarded as suitable for children, both for the scholarly information included and the subject matter. Many changes through the editions – such as turning the wicked mother of the first edition in Snow White and Hansel and Gretel (shown in original Grimm stories as Hansel and Grethel) to a stepmother, were probably made with an eye to such suitability. They removed sexual references—such as Rapunzel's innocently asking why her dress was getting tight around her belly, and thus naively revealing her pregnancy and the prince's visits to her stepmother—but, in many respects, violence, particularly when punishing villains, was increased. In 1825 the Brothers published their Kleine Ausgabe or "small edition", a selection of 50 tales designed for child readers. This children's version went through ten editions between 1825 and 1858.
