The Snow-White and the Skilful Huntsman: Illustrated by Brothers Grimm
(Jacob and Wilhelm), includes three fairy tales, illustrated from the original.
The Brothers Grimm: Jacob (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786–1859), were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, lexicographers and authors who together collected and published folklore.
These fairy tales are based on the original 1884 translation "Household Tales" of Margaret Hunt.
"Snow White" is a German fairy tale known across much of Europe and today one of the most famous fairy tales worldwide. The original version collected by the Brothers Grimm in 1812 is entitled in German: Sneewittchen.
The fairy tale features such elements as the magic mirror, the poisoned apple, the glass coffin, and the seven dwarfs, who were first given individual names in the Broadway play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1912) and then given different names in Walt Disney's 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
This stories are the base for the recent blockbuster The Snow White and the Huntsman, directed by Rupert Sanders in 2012. [more]
