Octavo, pp. [i-xi] xii-xviii [xix] xx [1-3] 4-179 [180: blank]. original decorated boards with tan cloth shelf back, spine panel stamped in gold, t.e.g., others edges untrimmed. First edition of this translation. Limited to 1000 numbered copies. Thirteen stories, most written in the style of "that curiously sophisticated thing, the later French fairy tale," as Saintsbury notes in his introduction. This sophistication, combined with a tendency towards "what we now call realism, that is to say, coarse or coarsened reality," makes for an invigorating artistic treat. The title story was first published in 1730, the others about 1742. The ninth book in the series of XVIII Century French Romances, edited by Vyvyan Holland (Oscar Wilde's son), published by Chapman and Hall in the mid-to-late 1920s, a useful resource for French fantastic fiction of the period. A fine copy in a very good decorated dust jacket with a touch of browning to spine and internal offsetting from several minor internal mends made with cellulose tape since removed. (#115858).
