On December Bentley Loft Classics proudly presents book #24, Grimms Fairy Tales by Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm.
Children's and Household Tales (German: Kinder- und Hausmärchen) is a collection of German origin fairy tales first published in 1812 by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, the Brothers Grimm. The collection is commonly known today as Grimms' Fairy Tales (German: Grimms Märchen).
On December 20, 1812, they published the first volume of the first edition, containing 86 stories, the second volume of 70 stories followed in 1814. For the second edition, two volumes were issued in 1819 and a third in 1822, totalling 170 tales. The third edition appeared in 1837, fourth edition, 1840, fifth edition, 1843, sixth edition, 1850, seventh edition, 1857. Stories were added, and also subtracted, from one edition to the next, until the seventh held 211 tales. All editions were extensively illustrated, first by Philipp Grot Johann and, after his death in 1892, by Robert Leinweber.
The Brothers investigated in the valley of the Weser to collect oral folk tales that they believed had their origins in authentic German tradition. They did not realize that much of the folklore that was transmitted to them was of French origin, especially the tales they gathered from the storyteller Dorothée Viehman, who provided The Brothers Grimm with 19 of their best stories. Viehman was the grand-daughter of Isaac Pierson, a huguenot from Metz.
The first volumes were much criticized because, although they were called "Children's Tales", they were not regarded as suitable for children, both for the scholarly information included and the subject matter. Many changes through the editions – such as turning the wicked mother of the first edition in Snow White and Hansel and Gretel to a stepmother, were probably made with an eye to such suitability. They removed sexual references—such as Rapunzel's innocently asking why her dress was getting tight around her belly, and thus naïvely revealing her pregnancy and the prince's visits to her stepmother—but, in many respects, violence, particularly when punishing villains, was increased.
In 1825 the Brothers published their Kleine Ausgabe or "small edition," a selection of 50 tales designed for child readers. This children's version went through ten editions between 1825 and 1858.
