“The White Cat and Other Old French Fairy Tales” By Mme. La Comtesse D’Aulnoy, 1928 Illustrated by Elizabeth MacKinstry, a sculptress turned illustrator. Some insipid tales with the dumbest princes I have ever heard of, but all the members of court look beautiful. Have scanned all 7 of the color plates with the exception of the title page. There are many, many line drawings - some of people, some of aristocratic cats. MacKinstry traveled to France and stayed a long while soaking up the art prior to illustrating this book. The Countess wanted the same delicate style and color schemes that she remembered from her own childhood books in France.
