Beauty & The Beast Collection

French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve wrote La Belle et la Bete in the 18th century. It was then rewritten by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, which the version most are familiar with. The story has since been adapted in various ways, but the truth behind it stays the same. True love is grander than anything else that one can purchase, steal, or give. When Belle's father lost all of his wealth during a storm and learns of one of his ships having been left unscathed, he leaves at once with gift requests from all of her siblings. Belle simply asked for a rose, and thus began her love story. Through this collection, you will immerse yourself in the gardens, libraries, and dreams of Beauty and her Beast.
