A New Book!

One of my many bookshelves; the books stacked on the right are L. M. Montgomery paperbacks. I had to put them horizontally on top of my Anne of Green Gables series because I ran out of room. Ah, the joys of collecting!

Yesterday I had an exciting surprise. I came upstairs to hear my father announcing that a large package had arrived for me and that it was a book! I discovered that it was the Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm. I had completely forgotten that I had ordered it. It is a beautiful copy with red binding and lovely illustrations by one of my favourite artists; Arthur Rackham.

It is published by Wordsworth Library Collection, and I purchased it online at This is the cover.

The binding.

The frontspiece.

The title page.

A beautiful castle by Arthur Rackham in the Sleeping Beauty fairytale.

This is at the end of the Cinderella fairytale. The caption reads, "He took Cinderella on his horse and rode away with her." Sigh. How perfect!
