An attractively illustrated early edition in French, gathering nine of Perrault's classic tales. Usually avidly leafed through by young readers, copies in such good condition are rare.

This edition includes "Le Petit Chaperon Rouge" (Little Red Riding Hood), "Le Petit-Poucet" (Tom Thumb), "Le Chat-Botté" (Puss in Boots), "Cendrillon" (Cinderella), and "La Barbe-Bleue" (Blue Beard) which is the principal archetype underlying Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre.
