THE WHITE CAT: An Old French Fairy Tale

One of the courtly tales of Mme. d'Aulnoy: to choose a successor, a king sends his sons on three quests; the youngest is helped by a cat who turns out to be an enchanted, marriageable queen. Long a favorite for its entrancing details and adventures, this gracefully retold story is elegantly illustrated with sumptuous paintings set in the ancien rÉgime. A handsome edition.
