I bought this book with my last money during the last few minutes of my last day in Berlin. I thought I recognized it but found it such a good copy that I took it anyway, even though Herr Düwal did not want to bargain. ...
I.A. Krylov: Basni
(Gos. izd-vo khudozh. lit-ryGoschdarstvennoe Izdatepbstvo, 1958)
The special feature of this book lies, I believe, in the strong woodcuts. The first of these is a full-page frontispiece showing Krylov himself in top hat in the midst of animals, a farmer, and a rustic. Then each of the ...
I.A. Krilov: Strekosa i Murabel: Basni
(Detsckar LiteraturaDetskai͡a Literatura, 1985)
I am convinced that I have this book already! It is an excellent short compendium in large format (8½ x 11) of some of the best of Krylov's fables, along with excellent representations. Besides GA, its sixteen pages ...
I.A. Krylov: Sochineniya v Dvuh Tomah (Works in Two Volumes)
(Izd-vo "Pravda", 1956)
Here, in two volumes, are Krylov's works. Apparently all of the fables are in this first volume. (I will keep the second with it in the collection for the sake of completeness.) The fables commence, after a beginning ...
I.A. Krylov: Sochineniya v Dvuh Tomah (Works in Two Volumes), Vol. II
Here, in two volumes, are Krylov's works. This edition seems to work off of the earlier Pravda edition of 1956. There are several changes. Exteriorly, the books drop the black profile of Krylov embossed on the front ...
I.A. Krylov: Basni
("Khudozhestvennai͡a literatura"Khudozhestvennaya Literatura Publishing, 1983)
I could have sworn that I already had this book, once I saw it up close. I cannot find it in the collection. The colors of the cover are the colors that predominate in the duo-tone illustrations inside, that is, browns ...
Fun Krylows Meszolim (Basnie)
(Idisz Buch, przy CKZwPYidish bukh, 1950)
Here is a book that one would not easily find in circulation! Paperbound books from Warsaw in 1950 might not have had a long life expectancy! This book contains some 120 of Krylov's 200 fables on 224 pages, followed by ...
I.A. Krilov: Basni
(Shkolnaya BibliotekaSredne-Uralʹskoe knizhnoe izd-vo, 1979)
Here is a simple pamphlet without illustrations. It presents fifty-two fables on 48 pages, with a T of C at the back. This is about as basic a book as you can find!
Elephant and Pug: Fables (Russian)
(Detsckar LiteraturaDetskai͡a Literatura, 1983)
Some 28 fables are here given two pages each. A large illustration shares space with the fable's title, and there is a continuation or echo on the right page with the text. There are some of the best Krylov illustrations ...
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.
