We are working on Scanning and Transcribing a copy of Grim's Fairy Tales.

The copy we currently have is undated but based on the typographical conventions, binding, printing and paper, it was likely printed mid to late 1800s possibly as late as the early 1900s. The hardbound volume was printed on wood pulp paper, while reasonably thick has browned significantly and become very brittle.

Images found here suggest that the likely date of printing would be 1898, but likely a reprint of a well worn stereotype, based on the poor condition of the printing plates.

The stories, were gathered, recorded and published by Jacob and Wilhelm Grim in German, originally as an academic publication, they later revised the stories repeatedly to make them more appropriate as literature for children. The stories have been and have been translated by multiple translators and repeatedly and revised leading to may different versions of the stories.

This edition contains Illustrations by Edward H. Wehnert and published by The F.M. Lupton Publishing Company (New York)

We are posting this for the enjoyment of people that may want to read pre-Disneyfication versions of some of the stories that have become hugely influential in pop culture.

Notably, this is a very incomplete set of the Grim's Fairy Tales, featuring only 106 of the tales, we will keep looking for other versions and the remaining missing tales.

When reading these tales, you should note that many reference Dwarves, pre-Tolkien / pre-Disney the terms Dwarf and Elf were interchangeable terms for fairy folk so you should not necessarily envisage either a Disney or Tolkien Dwarf or Elf.

It will take a while to Scan and transcribe the full set of stories. Email if you want to see a particular story done first.
