Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm


Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm (1785-1863) and Wilhelm Carl Grimm (1786-1859) were born near Frankfurt, Germany, and both became teachers at Gottingen University. They originally published their fairy tales as a scholarly examination of German folklore, but the stories were soon being read to children, and when they saw the first English translation in 1823, with its handsome woodblock illustrations, they created a selection of the most popular tales in an edition for young readers.
