As fairy tales were popularized, prolific illustrators like Rackham, Dulac and Gustave Doré made their mark in collections by the Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Andersen. Dulac actually wrote his own fairy books, but is best known for his contributions to traditional tales. And then came Disney, who made his fairy tale debut with Snow White. Seller Notes: “ *****Tales of Hoffmann by Lazare and Lindner (, Hardcover)*****I have taken a lot of photos of this book so please see them all and let the photos be the description, because with an old book like this they are going to be "aging, yellowing, etc. etc." This book is old and has signs of aging, storage,, and yellowing. It is intact but may have some minor Rating: % positive.

So I assume this is a later impression of the first edition. A poor child dreams of the Fairy Town of Toys where he meets King Nutcracker, toy soldiers, Noah's animals and Struwwelpeter and friends. This version of E.T.A. Hoffmann's story by the author of Struwwelpeter was first published in . But most of the stories were available elsewhere in the world and that is the mystery of fairy tales, how widely distributed a particular plot and character can be. When people think of fairy tales they do tend to think of mammoth compendiums like the Grimms’ or Perrault’s, or E T A Hoffmann’s.

About The Nutcracker. Hoffmann’s classic Christmas fairy tale, immortalized by Tchaikovsky’s ballet, is brought to life by the gorgeous contemporary artwork of Finnish illustrator Sanna Annukka, and is the perfect holiday gift for adults and children alike. Tales of Hoffmann by E. T. A. Hoffmann, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.
