Russian Fables of Ivan Krylov
(Penguin Books, 1942)
I am amazed to see this bilingual Russian/English Penguin published during the war. The English is identical, in the instances I have checked, with Pares' Cape edition (1926) and my Harcourt edition (1926/26?). The Cape ...
I.A. Krylov Basni
This looks to me like a standard Krylov edition from the Communist era. The paper is cheap, and the black-and-white illustrations rather sketchily printed. The good news is that the illustrations occupy a full page and ...
Basni Ivana Andreevicha Krylova
The eBay seller opined that this is a pre-revolution publication, and he seems to be right. Has a page become detached, or does this book not even proclaim its publisher? As the closing AI indicates, there are here some ...
Kriloff's Original Fables
(Remington & Co., 1883)
Harrison mentions in the preface that he is aware that Ralston's translation of Krylov into English already exists, but it is in prose and I am of the opinion that the spirit of Kriloff cannot but evaporate in prose (v-vi). ...
(Hyperion Press, 1926)
A facsimile of the book originally published by Jonathan Cape of London. See my copy of the edition by Harcourt, Brace (1926/26?), which seems identical.
Polnoe Sobranie Basni
Touted to me as the only full edition of Krylov's fables. The nine books are here, with about two hundred fables. This is an utterly unadorned book, without editor, date, prologue, or illustration. AI at the back.
Strekoza i Muravei
(Children's LiteratureDetskai͡a lit-ra, 1989)
Seven delightfully illustrated fables. The GA illustration on both covers and with the first fable may be the best, but all the illustrations are good.
I.A. Krilov: Selected Works
("Khudozhestvennai͡a literatura"Artistic Literature, 1984)
The fables run from 455 to 657 of Volume Two. There are some excellent full-page illustrations ( The Fox, the Lion, and the Wolf on 495; WC on 547; and FG on 561). Others of the illustrations are simple, lively, and ...
(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 ...
Chwedlau neu Ddammegion Aesop
(Argraffwyd a Chyhoeddwyd gan R. Hughes & Son,, 1870)
What a wonderful little treasure. The first book has a frontispiece of Aesop holding a scroll sitting in the countryside surrounded by animals. 140 fables, most with rectangular little illustrations reminiscent of Croxall. ...
