(Harcourt Brace and company,, 1926)
Apparently originally published by Jonathan Cape in London; there is no such indication here (and no date whatsoever). Though Harcourt, Brace is listed as in New York, the book is made and printed in London. A charming ...
Complete, with T of C at the back. Seven good silhouettes on the cover and end papers. The twenty-four black-and-white reproductions along the way give strong testimony to the art tradition accompanying Krylov's fables, ...
Here is a standard paperback presentation of the nine books of Krilov's fables. Other than the somewhat forbidding bust of Krilov photographed on the cover, there are no illustrations. There is a T of C at the back. I ...
(Institute of Children's Literature: Izdatielsvo Dietskoy LiteraturyT͡Sentralʹnyĭ komitet vsesoi͡uznogo Leninskogo kommunisticheskogo soi͡uza molodezhi Izd-vo detskoĭ lit-ry,, 1937)
This is one of my best editions of Krilov because of the ten strong full-page colored illustrations. I find illustrations for Quartet (7), The Monkey and the Spectacles (15), Master John's Soup (19), Elephant and Pug (27), ...
I.A. Krylov: Basni
(Dietckij LiteraturyGos. izd-vo detskoĭ lit-ry Ministerstva prosveshchenii͡a RSFSR, 1948)
This book seems a standard presentation of Krylov's fables, with a rich assortment of A. Laptyev's 1947 illustrations. Might they perhaps have been done for this edition and then used extensively elsewhere? The T of C ...
Fables from Russia
(Oxford University Press, 1943)
Sixty-eight fables in a very nice thin little volume with simple engravings. T of C on 9-10. Many of Krilov's fables seem to be entirely conversation; an example is Cuckoo and Dove (58). The best of the fables here are ...
(Detskai͡a lit-raDetskaya Literatura, 1983)
A selection of fables and illustrations in magazine format from the book Basni (1965) by the same people. Seven full-page illustrations and three vignettes. Only the cover illustration seems new, a nice adaptation of the ...
I. A. Krylov: Basni
Imagine my surprise first at finding a Russian bookstore in my wanderings around Kanda, and then my surprise at finding a lovely Krylov edition, and finally my surprise--after lots of deliberation over a stiff price--at ...
("Khudozhestvennai͡a literatura"Artistic Literature, 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 ...
("Sov. Rossii͡a"Covetskar Rosser, 1988)
A compact edition with T of C at the rear. About one-quarter of the fables are illustrated. Are these done in charcoal? They are delightful but indistinct in this printing format.
