  • Story titles differ from the 1922 collection with the same title (as does the sequence from 2nd to 5th), but the same collection of 10 stories is translated
  • "... for adult readers. Available in America only in this edition." --Avon Books advertisement, NY Times 1979-08-19 pBR8
  • See also the prize-winning picture book anthology Sleeping Beauty & Other Favourite Fairy Tales (1982), whose text is 12 stories translated from the French by Carter – the same ten stories by Perrault plus two by Leprince de Beaumont.
