(Gos. izd-vo khudozh. lit-lyOgiz, 1947)
An artistic book with a raised cover portrait and a variety of mature artistic styles in the black-and-white illustrations. T of C at the back. The price is even on the book and dust jacket! Do not overlook the individual ...
A Child's Version of Aesop's Fables
(Ginn & Company Publishers, 1904)
This seems to be an exact reprinting of the 1891 version, of which I have a copy. As I mention there, various people worked on the text, and the illustrations seem to be from Doré, Weir, and a certain F. Myrick (?). Let ...
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.
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 ...
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, ...
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. ...
(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 ...
("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.
