"26 special copies, lettered A-Z, which include a portfolio containing signed proofs of each of the wood engravings, printed by the artist on Japanese paper. Within the covers of Grimm's Household Tales lurk stories of peculiar power and perennial attraction. Despite the fact that many pantomime plots have been drawn from this source, children's stories most of them simply are not -- rather they offer material for endless reinterpretation and a feeling that hidden truths are there to be disinterred by the wise. Faithful John is one of the best, most complicatedly wrought and, more than most, liberally filled with apparent parables. The three ravens who haunt the attempts of the young prince to woo the beautiful princess, the faithful servant whose selfless acts are misinterpreted to the point of his being executed, whereupon his lifeless body turns to stone and can only be redeemed by child sacrifice ... which in turn is reversed by the power of faith. . . powerful and fascinating stuff. Quite the stuff, too, to draw a set of incredibly powerful images from the engraving tools of Harry Brockway. They are made all the more powerful because of the demands made by the unusual shape of all except the frontispiece - 198x34mm. Centaur type, computer generated and printed from polymer blocks. Printed on a special making (175gsm) of Zerkall mould-made paper on a FAG Control 900 press. Frontispiece and 15 wood engravings printed from the wood. Image, derived from a wood engraving, is repeated on alternate openings, printed in blue. Maroon cloth spine with gilt spine titling. Bright blue paper sides overprinted in gold to produce images derived from the frontispiece. Slipcase covered in maroon cloth with recessed black on white image."--Publisher description

Household stories [from the collection of the bros: Grim by Jacob Grimm( Book )

2 editions published between 1922 and 1934 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What most sets this volume apart from other editions of household tales are the translations that focus on capturing the "homely" talk of Germany into English. A few short pieces to which English-speaking mothers might object have been omitted, and the rest have been rendered into a "homely talk" compatible with English meanings. E.H. Wehnert's accompanying black and white illustrations are full of character and are in happy accordance with the spirit of the work. Together with the editors of this volume, E.H. Wehnert has artfully recreated the tales in a way that would delight the Grimm Brothers themselves!
