F the eleven tales which the present volume com prises, the first eight are from the master - hand of Charles Perrault. Charles Perrault (1628-1703) enjoyed much distinction in his day, and is familiar to students of French literature for the prominent part that he played in the famous Quarrel of the Ancients and Modems, which so keenly occupied French men of letters in the latter part of the seventeenth century. But his fame to-day rests upon his authorship of the traditional Tales of Mother Goose or Stories of Olden Times, and so long as there are children to listen spellbound to the adventures of Cinder ella, Red Riding Hood, and that arch rogue Puss in Boots, his memory will endure.
