From my tumblr.

I finally managed to get my hands on Enchanted Eloquence. This book is amazing and full of really helpful footnotes; I’m incredibly sad that it’s out of print. The story that I particularly wanted to read was Charlotte-Rose de la Force’s Green and Blue. I suspect that it has some connection with Henriette-Julie de Murat’s The Prince of Leaves. I don’t know exactly what that connection might be; perhaps they were working from the same idea, or perhaps one inspired the other, but there are a lot of similarities between the stories and I’d be surprised if it was just a coincidence. The Prince of Leaves can be read online in J. R. Planché’s Four and Twenty Fairy Tales.
