More About Madame de Villeneuve's Original Beauty and the Beast - Illustrated by Edward Corbould and Brothers Dalziel by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot De Villeneuve; J. R. Planche; Brothers Dalziel
 
 
 
Overview

This book is Villeneuve's Original Beauty and the Beast story, first translated into English by J. R Planch . Although it contains the familiar plots and themes of more recent shortened versions of the tale, Villleneuve's original piece of story telling explores the back story of both Belle and the Beast. The Beast was a prince who lost his father at a young age, and whose mother had to wage war to defend his kingdom. Belle's story reveals her true parentage and her life is threatened. This edition was originally published in 1858 and contains two beautiful engravings by Edward Corbould and the Brothers Dalziel.

Villeneuve was a French author influenced by Madame d'Aulnoy, Charles Perrault and various female intellectuals. La Belle et La B te was first published in 1740 published in La Jeune Am ricaine, et Les Contes Marins. Planch himself was a British dramatist and antiquary, chiefly responsible for introducing historically accurate costume into nineteenth century British theatre. His interest in folklore stemmed from such endeavours - and his passion for the tales as well as mastery of the French language is apparent in this text.
