Grimm Tales

I just bought myself a new book and so far it is absolutely wonderful!
I had been looking for a while for a book with the complete tale by the brothers Grimm. 
Today while in the book store I happened upon this and could not resist picking it up!!!
The introduction to the book is written by Ken Mondschein, PhD and I think he did a wonderful job at it, his introduction was well thought out and sectioned. I learned a little about the brothers and the time period that I did not know from the introduction and I think it will help me to understand the stories better.
The book itself looks lovely, leather bound(fake leather of course), gold edged pages and it even has a page marker! I like that it has a page marker because I am always forgetting my book mark or its falling out of my book. Can't wait to get to the more popular and modernized stories like "Cinderella" and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" to see how different they are now compared to the originals.
