Little Red Riding Hood

Red Riding Hood walking with the wolf

An illustration from 'Fünfzig Kinder- und Hausmärchen' (Leipzig, 1894) [NLS shelfmark: AB.1.200.004].


This 1894 German edition of 50 fairy tales contains 16 colour prints after watercolours by Chekla Brauer. They are very evocative in their romanticised depiction.

Here Little Red Riding Hood meets the wolf as she walks to her grandmother's house.

The book featured in the 'Illustrating the Grimms' display at the National Library of Scotland, which ran from 19 September to 18 November 2012
