Read full description of the books:
I have searched for this book with illustrations by Adrienne Segur for the last 10 years. If you love fairy tale art by Kay Nelson , Maxfield Parrish, Arthur Rackham you won't be able to resist the art of Adrienne Segur.
What a thrill to see these illustrations and read the beautiful translations from the French. The stories still are as powerful as ever...I was surprised. There is no sugar coating/political correctedness. In searching through the internet, many adults who are fans of this illustrator talk about the effect she had on their childhood...especially if it was difficult. The illustrations "reached out to you" or "understood how you felt". This is really tough to explain if you have not seen them! I hope some of you have had the joy of this experience too.
I was fortunate enough to find the 1962 edition that looks like it is untouched...
