The 1810 Grimm Manuscripts: The First Complete English Translation of the 1810 Handwritten Manuscripts The Beginnings of the Kinder- und Hausmärchen Children's and Household Tales By Oliver Loo
Hardcover: $59.95

Before the Brothers Grimm published their now world famous "Childrens and Household Tales" in 1812, they had sent their manuscript containing approximately 51 tales to their friend Clemens... More > Brentano, who also wanted to publish children’s tales. The brothers asked him to return their manuscript when he was finished with it, but he never did. While they went on to publish their tales, their own copies of the original manuscripts for the first volume of the tales do not exist anymore. By accident or fortunate circumstance, the manuscript they sent to Brentano survived and can be read today. “The 1810 Grimm Manuscripts” is the first English language translation of the Grimms “Kinder- und Hausmärchen” as they were in the Fall of 1810. It is the first written documentation of the tales as the brothers heard and saw them. It shows the very first written documentation of the Grimms versions of Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, The Frog King and many other tales.< Less

The Grimms Tales as you have never experienced them before – complete, accurate, and authentic - exactly as the Grimms wrote them 200 years ago. A completely new, cover-to-cover translation... More > with extensive notes and commentary for the 200th anniversary translated in a new style that preserves the original texts in a way that has never been done before. There are 34 stories in the original 1812 edition that never appear in any of the later editions. In the 1812 first edition of the tales, the Grimms also included an extensive 60 page appendix which discussed the oral and literary sources of the tales and often times one or more other versions of the stories. The 1812 appendix was never published in any English versions, so the 60 “new” stories and fragments found therein have been almost entirely unknown to English readers for last 200 years. The appendix is a lost “gem” and arguably as important as the stories themselves.< Less
