Popular Stories Collected by the Brothers Grimm (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Popular Stories Collected by the Brothers Grimm I have to express my obligations to the Widow of Mr. Edgar Taylor for obligingly giving her consent to my reprinting the original translation, the labour of reproducing which has been very carefully performed by Messrs. Taylor and Francis, who printed the first editions nearly half a century ago. I had at first thought of reproducing it in two volumes the same size as the originals; but it was Mr. Ruskin's wish that the new edition should appeal to young readers rather than to adults, and the present convenient form was decided upon. The notes, reprinted from the original editions, are by Mr. Edgar Taylor; and to his Widow I am indebted for the loan of the interesting letter from Sir Walter Scott, printed at p. 334.
