The Rose and the Ring

by William Makepeace Thackeray

Description:  A fireside pantomime for children great and small, who delight at the twists the plot takes when the rose and the ring change hands, for whoever has either one becomes charming in the eyes of any beholder. Prince Giglio, Betsinda, Gruffanuff, and Bulbo all have their affections turned multiple times in the course of the story. Illustrations by the author are not to be missed! The couplets at the head of each chapter in the book are here combined into a single poem at the end.
