Perrault's Tales of Mother Goose, published in 1697, is often cited by critics as the first important volume published specifically for young adults. Most or all of the tales that he collected in the book had been passed along orally, and it was Perrault who gave them their definitive literary form. Almost all readers become familiar with such stories as "The Sleeping Beauty," "Little Red Ridinghood," "Puss in Boots," and "Cinderella" at an early age. These stories have been edited and retold in countless different ways since Perrault wrote them down in 1697, and are now so familiar that modern readers often take them for granted.Perrault's versions of these fairy tales are the literary models from which the various modern adaptions are derived. In preparing his translation, Bierhorst worked from facsimiles of the original seventeenth-century edition of Perrault's book in order to keep his translation as close to the original as possible. His notes provide important historical background for the tales.

‘Tales of Passed Times’ is a collection of Charles Perrault’s fairy tales, accompanied by the beautiful illustrations of John Austen. A French nobleman and writer, Perrault (1628 – 1703) was among the first writers to bring magical children’s stories into the literary mainstream, proving to his original seventeenth century readers (and those in the present day!) that such works were important, enjoyable, as well as thought-provoking. The stories in this particular text include such favourites as ‘Blue Beard’, ‘Little Red Riding-Hood’, ‘Sleeping Beauty’, ‘Puss in Boots’ and ‘Cinderella’ – as well as other, less well known tales such as ‘Riquet of the Tuft’, ‘Little Thumbling’ and ‘Princess Rosette.’ These stories of ‘Tales of Passed Times’ are accompanied by a set of dazzling colour illustrations from a true master of the ‘Golden Age of Illustration’ – John Austen (1886 – 1946). His early works, including a fine ‘Hamlet’, were Beardsleyesque in style, but after 1925, Austen was heavily influenced by the Art Deco movement. His illustrations continue to delight both young and old alike, right up to the present day. They are here presented alongside the text – further refining and elucidating Perrault’s legendary storytelling. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s classics and fairy tales – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.

Tales of Passed Times' is a collection of Charles Perrault's fairy tales, accompanied by the beautiful illustrations of Charles Robinson. A French nobleman and writer, Perrault (1628-1703) was among the first authors to bring magical children's stories into the literary mainstream, proving to their original seventeenth century readers that such works were important, enjoyable, as well as thought-provoking. The stories in this particular text include such favorites as 'Blue Beard', 'Little Red Riding-Hood', 'Sleeping Beauty', 'Puss in Boots' and 'Cinderella' as well as other, less well known tales such as 'Riquet of the Tuft', 'Little Thumbling' and 'Princess Rosette.' These stories are accompanied by a set of dazzling colored illustrations from a true master of the 'Golden Age of Illustration' - Charles Robinson (1870-1937). An active painter in his own right, and brother of the famous Thomas and William Heath Robinson, his illustrations still delight both young and old over a century later. Robinson started his illustrative career with 100 pen and ink drawings for A Child’s Garden of Verses (1895). The book was an instant hit, and from that point onwards, Robinson continued to illustrate fairy tales and children’s books – with his characteristic style of subtle line, combined with delicate watercolours. The fairy tales in their original translations are presented here, alongside Robinson's beautiful images. Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of Illustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children’s stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.
