with a second volume dated 1815 Although the most accurate translation f this title would be Children s and Household Tales most English readers know these stories as Grimms Fairy Tales sadly ften with the apostrophe misplaced as Grimm s Fairy Tales Between 1824 and 1839 Edgar Taylor had translated these tales into English again in two volumes In 1870 Wilhelm s eldest son Hermann edited what has come to be known as the definitive edition f Kinder und Hausm rchen In 1901 Marian Edwardes made a selection Soul Dust of these tales and it isn her selection which most modern collections are now
