    Not a complete collection, but covering a lot of his illustrations. Including not only a collection of popular European folk tales (many of which are not commonly known), but also The Water Babies, a collection of Indian fairy tales, a collection of Japanese fairy tales, the Pentamerone of Italian literary tales, and a book of fairy poetry.Some lovely stuff here.
