In-12, bradel of antique replacement parchment with red title page, red marks (modern binding).

The date of 1755 has sometimes been suggested due to internal dating elements in the text, but this is more likely to give an indication of when it was written than when it was published. The woman of letters Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont remains famous for her fairy tales, including Beauty and the Beast.
