Re: Does anyone know this story?|
Rosanie is the name of the heroine in Ricdin Ricdon, but that doesn't really fit the other title you have here.
The book is also called 'In Powder and Crinoline', and contains the following stories:
--Felicia ; or, The pot of pinks.
--The twelve dancing princesses.
--Rosanie ; or, The inconstant prince.
--The man who never laughed.
--John and the ghosts.
I am assuming that you have already found this out.
There is an oriental-influenced fairy tale, Rosanie, written by the Count de Caylus, but I am unable to find out any more about it.
Hopefully someone else will be able to help you.
EDIT: there appears to be an entry in The Oxford Companion to Fairy tales that may help you, but I am unable to access it online.
