Hello hello. I don't suppose you've already done a post of recommended fairy tales/collections?

No, I haven’t! This is not an exhaustive list by any means: just stories that I’ve read and enjoyed. 

European

I’m most familiar with European fairy tales, as I grew up with them. A collection I like very much is Maria Tatar, The Classic Fairy Tales (PDF): a critical edition focusing on six major tales (Cinderella, Snow White, Beauty & the Beast, Bluebeard, Hansel & Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood), offering versions from different cultures, adaptations and rewritings and subversions, etc. It’s fascinating to compare.

Britain & Ireland

France & Italy:

Germany

Scandinavia & Russia

Asia

Also: Husain Haddawy, The Arabian Nightsespecially “The Three Ladies From Baghdad” and “The Envier and the Envied”; and Haddawy, The Arabian Nights IIespecially “Ali Al Din” and “Qamar al-Zaman”. 

Modern fairytales & adaptations:
