An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

The Annotated Classic Fairytales

The Annotated Classic Fairy Tales - Maria Tatar, Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, Jørgen Engebretsen Moe, Charles Perrault

A great book for anyone interested in the history behind selected popular European (I'm pretty sure all the stories were from Europe but I could be wrong) fairytales. The stories include several illustrations from different editions as well, and it's cool to compare the different interpretations.
