Praise

“Among the few indispensable, common-property books upon which Western culture can be founded . . . It will be a mistake if this volume is merely bought for a child; it should be, first and foremost, an educational ‘must’ for adults.”
—W. H. Auden, The New York Times

“Here it is, clear and fine and solid, beautifully and passionately illustrated, this one book—other than the Bible—that has truly made Western man.”
—P. L. Travers, The New Republic

“Everyone should possess and know Grimm’s Fairy Tales—one of the great books of the world—and no English-speaking person could do better than this edition.”
—Richard Adams, The New York Times Book Review

“[A] splendid edition, admirably illustrated.”
—Edmund Wilson, The New Yorker
