London, Routledge, 1856. Second edition. Hardback. Very Good. Rebound in blue faux leather. Some wear, creasing and short tears to some of the leaves. Starting to split at title page. Some rubbing to the boards, some light sporadic spotting. Outstanding illustrations by John Gilbert. D'Aulnoy was one of a group of French writers who would meet at the local salons to discuss literature and folk lore which acted as a catalyst for the more literary aspect of fairy tales. She was also a contemporary of Perrault. Three copies on copac and four copies in the US. No copies recorded at auction. D'Aulnoy is credited with creating the term 'Fairy Tales', which is how she refered to her works.
