Albert Weisgerber – Grimms’ Fairy Tales

Children and Household Tales from the collection of the Brothers Grimm, illustrated by Albert Weisgerber

This collection was published in 1900 but there were several reprints and we don’t know for sure if this was the first edition. Anyways, we present all pictures and drawings with an occasional decorative capital letter as well.

Just beware – these stories are among the most gruesome in the collection and definitely not meant for the faint-hearted. Albert Weisgerber’s style perfectly captured the feel of horror and occasional repulsion which is almost forgotten in today’s sanitized versions.

Let’s go!

The Owl (KHM 174)
