Paris: Librairie De L. Hachette, 1860. 4to. Vol.1: 325 pp. 240 b/w wood engravings. Vol. 2: 371 pp. 315 b/w. wood engravings. 2 volumes. Vol. 1 contains the following stories: Histoire du veritable Gribouille. Tresor des Feves et Fleur Des Pois. Aventures merveilleuses et touchantes du prince Chenevis et de sa soeur. Le Genie bonhomme. les Fleurs des Bois. Vol. 2 contains the following stories: La bouillie de la Comtesse Berthe. Monsieur le Vent et Madame la Pluie. Le Prince Coqueluche. This set normally comprises 4 physical volumes but not necessarily as it seems the publisher grouped the stories by volume differently. Each volume has a group of stories profusely illustrated by the ranking graphic artists of the day. The important constant is the actual total number of stories rather than how they are divided into 4 volumes. Edition Hetzel. Internally fine. Bindings are fine.
