Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
The Story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves
But this queen died; and the king soon married another wife, who was very beautiful, but so proud that she could not bear to think that any one could be more beautiful than her. She had a magical looking-glass, to which she used to go and gaze upon herself in it, and say—. Then the glass one day answered queen, when she went to consult it as usual—. Then poor Snow-White wandered along through the wood in great fear; and the wild beasts roared around, but none did her any harm. In the evening she came to a little cottage, and went in there to rest, for her weary feet would carry her no further. Everything was spruce and neat in the cottage: on the table was spread a white cloth, and there were seven little plates with seven little loaves and seven little glasses with wine in them; and knives and forks laid in order, and by the wall stood seven little beds. Then, as she was exceedingly hungry, she picked a little piece off each loaf, and drank a very little wine out of each glass; and after that she thought she would lie down and rest.
Once upon a time, long, long ago a king and queen ruled over a distant land. The queen was kind and lovely and all the people of the realm adored her. The only sadness in the queen's life was that she wished for a child but did not have one. One winter day, the queen was doing needle work while gazing out her ebony window at the new fallen snow. A bird flew by the window startling the queen and she pricked her finger. A single drop of blood fell on the snow outside her window.
The book is a twist on the classic tale of Snow White by the Brothers Grimm. Since then it has been republished several times, including in , , and The book is printed in white and black.
