Notes
  • backstrip off, boards worn & def, label w/ shelf number on cover.
  • ink stamp on title "Joa Vecilin van Claerbergen/ Herema-State / Joure."
  • First translation of any of the Grimms' fairy tales to another language and the First Illustrated edition -- both of these features having been previouxly attributed to the 1823-1826 "German Popular Stories" illustrated by George Cruikshank.
  • As the title indicates, this version is specifically for children and was presumably inspired by the 1819 second edition of the Grimms' tales which had been re-edited with a juvenile audience in mind..
  • This collection of 20 fairy tales does not include any of those from Perrault's "Mother Goose" (Moeder de Gans)collections , which were already well-known to Dutch children (though it does contain a tale very similar to Leprince de Beaumont's "Beauty and the Beast":"Het zingende, springende Leeuwerikje" .
