Jeanne Marie Leprince de Beaumont (1711-1780) was a French writer. In 1746 she left France to work in London as a nanny. In between classes, she told her students fairy tales and stories. In the meantime, she continued her literary career by publishing collected works, which she called “magazines”. These “magasins”, as offered here, were usually booklets with educational and moralizing stories and poems for children about the good things people should do. They were reprinted until the early 19th century.
