norwegian tales

This book is a unique anthology of 110 Norwegian folk tales collected by Asbjornsen & Moe and first published in 1841. It also contains more than 120 engravings by the most famous Scandinavian painters of the time, including Theodor Kittelsen, who illustrated the cover. These tales were collected at a time when Norway did not exist as a country and was part of the Swedish crown, and were so important that they were used for the normalization of the Norwegian language after independence. They are so beautiful that Jacob Grimm said they were "the best tales that exist and surpass any  other".

Very interesting review of Pep Bruno in his invaluable blog On the paths of the oral land

The review, in addition to the necessary informative reference on the publication of the book, takes us into its contents, the interest of this type of publication, as well as the presence and care of the edition, its binding or the numerous images that it includes, among other things.
