255 pp, 10" H. Colour and b&w illustrations. "In this book twenty-four of the best-known tales are given in their original form, either as they were first printed in English, or in their earliest surviving text. Each tale has a historical introduction, showing the development of the story and noting particular points of interest. Was Cinderella's shoe really a glass slipper or was it made of fur? Was Red Ridinghood devoured by the wolf, or was she saved? How did the old woman in Southey's version of 'The Three Bears' become the Goldilocks we know today? In a general introduction Iona and Peter Opie look at the realism as well as the enchantment in the tales, and put into perspective the contributions of Per-rault, the Grimm brothers, and Hans Christian Andersen. The book contains 150 illustrations, over 40 in colour, by famous illustrators such as Walter Crane, George Cruickshank, Gustave Dore, Kate Green-away, Arthur Rackham, W. Heath Robinson, and Rex Whistler."
