Dwarves, giants, princesses, kings, fairies, and magicians ... all can be found in the enchanting fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm. Twenty-two of the Grimms' best stories are brought to life in this deluxe edition, from well-known favorites like "Rapunzel," "Red Riding Hood," "Rumpelstiltskin," and "Hansel and Grethel," to lesser-known treasures such as "The Valiant Tailor" and "The Frog Prince." Arthur Rackham's extraordinary interpretations are beautifully reproduced here in 21 full-color plates and 28 black-and-white drawings that lavishly embellish the pages.

    Fairy tales are part of the history of man. We can find tales even going back to the Sumer people, that is at the dawn of the writing and of the history, as opposed to pre-history. But, lot of fairy tales, if not tha vast majority of them, are of oral tradition put in a written form by phylologists of vaiour ages. One says that fairy tales are destined to children with a pedagogical intent. Instead, if we read them closely and slowly, triyng to capture their phylological, folklorical, psycological, literary, intent, they reveal aspects of the nature and history of man, archetypal of everyone of us: and it's for this reason that we identify with them, adults and children alike.

    Abandoned for real... I actually left it in a drawer in Denmark because I didn't have enough room in my suitcase. Shame, I did not finish it. Sigh..
