From my tumblr.

The girl whose father tried to marry her is best known through Perrault’s Donkeyskin and the Grimms’ Allerleirauh, but there are many other similar stories. There are two earlier ones: Tebaldo/Doralice (Straparola) and The She-Bear (Basile). There is also an 18th century tale, Bearskin (author uncertain; perhaps Henriette-Julie de Murat or Marguerite de Lubert) which combines these two stories (my translation is from Wonder Tales). Read on for lurid tales of incest and bestiality.
