Old German script in Brothers Grimm book?

I have an old copy (undated) of a fairy tales book by the Brothers Grimm. In the table of contents I can read the titles, but having no German I can't read much more than that. The book is published in the old ornate German script (sorry, don't know the technical name for it). My question is: Does... show more I have an old copy (undated) of a fairy tales book by the Brothers Grimm. In the table of contents I can read the titles, but having no German I can't read much more than that.

The book is published in the old ornate German script (sorry, don't know the technical name for it).

My question is: Does anybody know about what year books would have been published in the old script? In about what year would the script have changed to a modern typeface?

I'd like to get an approximate date for the publication of this book.

Thanks for your help.
