Ewilan | 89 comments Maybe you should combine all the books to main entry (as you can)

lethe | 14135 comments I combined the two credited to Alexandre Dumas, but I'm not sure of the other one. The cover says Alexandre Dumas, but it's credited to E.T.A. Hoffmann, so maybe originals and adaptations have been combined. (My own, Dutch, copy is credited to E.T.A. Hoffmann.)

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 6911 comments I added Dumas to that edition and changed the language to French. The Amazon link does not have that cover, but does list Dumas as the author. However, as it is the Default edition, I'm hesitant to try separating. All of the other editions (or at least the ones I glanced at) seem to be of the ballet by Hoffmann.

Ewilan | 89 comments "Histoire d'un casse-noisette" (the Tale of the Nutcracker) is a famous revision by Alexandre Dumas, père of the Hoffmann tale "Casse-Noisette et le Roi des souris" (The Nutcracker and the Mouse King).
