Brilliant color illustrations complement a noted folklorist's masterful retellings of traditional fairy tales in this splendid hardcover edition. Quiller-Couch, a distinguished Cambridge don, recounts seven tales of enchantment: "Minon-Minette," "Felicia, or The Pot of Pinks," "Rosanie, or The Inconstant Prince," "The Man Who Never Laughed," "John and the Ghosts," "The Czarina's Violet," and the title tale. The stories are illuminated by 23 color plates by Kay Nielsen, a Golden Age of Illustration artist whose Art Nouveau images recall the style of Aubrey Beardsley.

A Calla Edition, originally published as In Powder & Crinoline, Hodder & Stoughton.
