    Sophie Rostopchine Comtesse de Segur
This first volume of the "Old French Fairy Tales" by Sophie Rostopchine, Comtesse de Ségur (1799-1874) gathers together three stories from a marvelous age when fairies and genii were still thriving in our world and our imagination. Exquisitely illustrated by Virginia Frances Sterrett (1900-1931), "The story of Blondine, Bonne-biche, and Beau-Minon", "Good Little Henry" and "History of Princess Rosette" are bringing back from a distant past some good old moral values and a reassuring creed that honesty, true friendship and love will ultimately prevail. Despite all evil plots meant to lure and to perish her, Blondine learns that obedience, good nurture and, most of all, patience will always be rewarded. Henry discovers that his filial love and diligence can overcome the most impressive obstacles, while Princess Rosetta wins our hearts and that of Prince Charmant solely by her kindness, decency and generosity. Not from this world? Not in these times? Maybe. But then again, why not? Along with the second volume of the "Old French Fairy Tales", the book is part of the "Vintage books - restored" collection.
