      Krylov, Ivan Andreevich; Tibaldi Chiesa, Maria (translator) (Italgeo. Milano,, 1945)
      The major find--and major bargain--in this trip to New Orleans! An Italian Krylov in good condition. And what must Milan have been like in 1945? This is my first book out of some 1330 that is dated 1945. Do not miss ...

    • Basni 

      Krylov, Ivan Andreevich (Bookking International. Paris, 1994)
      This Penguin-like book might be my most complete and organized edition of Krylov's fables. Compare it with Pares' translation (1926). Book VII here seems to have one more fable than Pares' edition has; note also that ...

    • Basni 

      Krylov, Ivan Andreevich ("Khudozhestvennai͡a literatura"Artistic Literature. MoscowMoskva, 1984)
      The illustrations are delightful. Those that are immediately clear as Aesopic for fables I know come on pages 4-5, 11, 38-9, 55, 177, and 183. Valuable for including to show Aesop's international influence. Here is a ...
