Additional Details

French Reprint Edition. This edition is often confused with the earlier 1908 French edition; the Library of Congress and, consequently, the NUC catalogue have catalogued it incorrectly. In addition to a different title-page design and lack of a colophon, on page [117] of this edition an announcement for other works illustrated by Dulac appears, including The Snow Queen and the new title for Tempest (which had been L''Ile Enchantée), both of which did not exist until 1911.
