Summary expansion
Desbordes' reprint used the text of the Barbin edition, reversing the frontispiece and the copperplate vignettes, and maintained the fiction of attributing authorship of these classic tales to Perrault's young son Pierre Perrault-Darmancour; it is now believed that father Charles composed them all but allowed his son to sign the dedication to "Mademoiselle" (a niece of Louis XIV) as a courtly conceit. Included here are Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Puss in Boots, Sleeping Beauty, Bluebeard as they were first presented to the world nearly 300 years ago, pre-dating the first translation of these tales into English published in London in 1729
