This vintage edition of the classic Grimm's Fairy Tales is left as a clue by Jim Moriarty in The Reichenbach Fall. It was originally published in 1944 by the New York based printer Pantheon Books, and reprinted in the United Kingdom in 1948 by Routledge and Kegan Paul, sans the Pantheon branding on the front cover and spine.

The current edition of the Pantheon stories are published by Random House, with dramatically different cover art and is currently avaliable from Amazon.

'For almost two centuries, the stories of magic and myth gathered by the Brothers Grimm have been part of the way children-and adults-learn about the vagaries of the real world. Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow-White, Hänsel and Gretel, Little Red-Cap (a.k.a. Little Red Riding Hood), and Briar-Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) are only a few of more than 200 enchanting characters included here. Lyrically translated and beautifully illustrated, the tales are presented just as Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm originally set them down: bold, primal, just frightening enough, and endlessly engaging.'
