Title: The Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault Title Record # 178697
Author: Charles Perrault
Date: 1977-00-00
Type: COLLECTION
Language: English
Note:
  • 10 stories
  • New translation from the French (and Foreword) by Angela Carter, 1977
  • "Translation of the collection generally known as: Contes des fées" --noted, LCCN: 78-304710 (not evidently quoted from the book)
  • 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. ISFDB presumes the ten Perrault/Carter stories to be identical in the 1977 collection and the 1982 anthology.
