Marie-Jeanne L'Héritier de Villandon (1664-1734), a relative of the better-known Charles Perrault, was among the most important creators of the fairy tales genre. This ground-breaking collection gathers four stories originally published in 1696, a year before Perrault's Tales of Mother Goose, the classic The Dark Tower and the Luminous Days published in 1705, as well as an essay written in the form of a letter, in which Mlle L'Héritier casts more light on the detail of her thinking, the process by which the tales came to be written and the various things that she was attempting to achieve.

(top) "Transcriber's note Sixteen page numbers are missing from 136 to 152. None of the stories are missing. This is only an error in numbering." (Probably that represents one 16-page segment, where the first spans 8 front pages and p1-8. The first of 28 collected fairy tales begins p9; new tales also begin on pages 41, 73, 105, 153 [p137-52 missing], 185 [one story fills the 32-page span p153-84], 201, 217, 249, 281, 313, 329, 345, 377, and [409] is the first blank page. Granting that 16 pages are missing, the book contains 400 printed pages, 8 unnumbered and 392 numbered 1 to 408.

  • Title page credits 24 illustrations by Richard Doyle. HTML format displays illustrations (all black-and-white, some full-page), no cover. Several engravers are credited at the foot of the Contents list.
  • Marginal notes report original page numbers (1 to 408). 28 stories identified by language, and most by author, span pages 9-408. </ul> Project Gutenberg Ebook #34956 (<a href="http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/pl.cgi?343281">see</a>) https://lccn.loc.gov/44010249 Famous Fairy Tales [of All Nations], New ed., evidently uncredited London [Dean & son] 1872 o[31602398]

It is impossible in a "sad and civil" journal like this, that much space should be bestowed on the telling of fa:ery tales: but two specimens--which indeed might more correctly be styled apologues or fables--are so manageable in compass, as well as so racy, that we must not withhold them.-- [in full, "The Two Misers [Hebrew]" and "The Expeditious Frog [Wendian]"

It is a picture of one phase of the popular literature of these various peoples, and in that light, a valuable study." Lou Daily Journal 1849-12-29 p2 "This will be found by our young friends to be a very welcome addition to their stock of fairy lore. The tales are all new to American youth ..."
