Old-fashioned, often broken typeface and Arthur Rackham's gloriously reproduced original artwork accompany 22 stories in a new edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales, originally published in 1909. A sepia-toned illustration for ""Red Riding Hood"" shows the cloaked girl meeting the bristly wolf, dwarfed by endlessly tall, bare trees. A caption in ""The Bremen Town Musicians"" recalls the bygone era: ""They came upon a Cat, sitting in the road, with a face as long as a wet week."" ( Sept.)
