Notes

First trade edition, later issue. There was no UK trade edition, only the limited edition of 600 copies, also published in 1925. One of the finest illustrated editions of the Brothers Grimm; "Nielsen is a brilliant colourist and a highly decorative illustrator, his works, formed into frieze-like patterns, are closest to Persian or Middle-Eastern designs and therefore akin to Leon Bakst or Edmund Dulac" (Houfe, The Dictionary of 19th Century Book Illustrators and Caricaturists, p. 243).
