A beautiful copy of stories first told to her grandchildren. These were intended to entertain children 4 to 8 years old, and sought by Louis Hachette to be part of his scheme of a line of books to be sold at railway kiosks for reading on the train. This and our Perrault Contes de Fées #22079, from the estate of children's playwright Maryfrank Gardener, for 110.00, make a lovely set.
