LibriVox. Brothers Grimm.

This particular English version of the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm is a bit confusing in terms of bibliography. You can find out more about this book in the Grimm (LibriVox) unit of the Myth-Folklore UnTextbook.

The LibriVox recording is based on a Project Gutenberg edition. Unfortunately, however, that Project Gutenberg edition is an amalgam of different sources that are not clearly indicated. It includes translations from Marian Edwardes and from Edgar Taylor, without indicating which story come from which source and, as near as I can tell, there is no printed book which matches the edition offered at Project Gutenberg. The main thing is that all the stories in the Gutenberg edition are available at LibriVox for your listening pleasure, and the table of contents is listed below.
You can also consult books by Marian Edwardes and by Edgar Taylor online as follows:

Fairy Tales by the Brothers Grimm, translated by Edgar Taylor and Marian Edwardes, with illustrations by R. Anning Bell. Available at Wikisource. The stories from Edwardes appear to be the following: The Frog PrinceBriar Rose, and The Mouse, The Bird, and The Sausage.

Grimm's Goblins: Grimm's Household Stories, translated by E. Taylor, with illustrations by George Cruikshank. Available at Internet Archive.
(See also the edition published under the title German Popular Stories, also available at Internet Archive.)
