What a great find with the book!


Gothic Horror and Fairytales...are you enjoying yourself so far? DS is doing comic books next quarter. Not exactly something I ever thought they'd teach a university class on, but what do I know? I probably never thought they'd teach one of fairytales, either. Perhaps it's time to go back to school?

I took storytelling as part of my master's degree, and was facinated to learn how folk/fairy tales are cataloged and indexed.
You can actually search for a story with an bridge, a bear, and the color red, and then by area as well. It is a unique cataloging system, and maybe useful in your studies. So very helpful when researching folk/fairy stories by theme too.


Thanks for sharing your great finds with us Roz. When I am able to see it here it feels just a tiny little bit mine as well .-)


What a find! What a treasure! As a book alterer myself, I am sitting here turning pea green. You'll just have to enjoy it for both of us.



Wow, I love this. What a great find!

What a great find, Roz! After reading Loretta's article in Cloth, Paper, Scissors this month, I want to do more visual journaling than I'm currently doing. Glad you are enjoying your class, even if it is time and labor-intensive.


Oh how lucky you are to have found this!!

I love the sound of this. But 'tis not my choice. :-)

Thank you for posting this discovery. I know it has been a long time, but a friend with similar interests in historical Tarot cards pointed it out to me today.

The catalogue for the 1935 exhibition of Italian art at the Petit Palais is online - https://www.petitpalais.paris.fr/sites/default/files/m1111077084361-e34-2.pdf

This catalogue does not mention that these cards were on display, so your discovery is the only evidence that they were there, as far as I know at the moment. The cards belonged to the Visconti di Modrone family, and shortly after the war they were sold to the widow of Melbert Cary Jr., who bequeathed them to Yale University in 1967.
