This elegantly designed clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction by Lori Campbell.

The author

The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, and authors who together collected folklore. They are among the most well-known storytellers of European folk tales, and their work popularized such stories as "Cinderella," "The Frog Prince," "Hansel and Gretel," "Rapunzel," "Rumpelstiltskin," and "Snow White."

Lori Campbell is a lecturer at the University of Pittsburgh, where she teaches courses in 19th- and 20th-century literature and cultural studies. She is the author of Portals of Power: Magical Agency and Transformation in Literary Fantasy.
