I.A. Krylov: Basni
This is a very pleasant contemporary rendition of Krylov. The artistic style combines contemporary sensibility with traditional Russian approaches. Thus the fox addressing the crow with cheese in its beak -- and a babuschka ...
(Detskai͡a lit-raDetskaya Literatura, 1983)
Here is a 1985 printing of a magazine I already have listed under its original printing date of 1983. As I mention there, it is a selection of fables and illustrations in magazine format from the book Basni (1965) by the ...
(E.P. Dutton & co.Kegan Paul, Trench, Trubner & Co., 1920)
Eighty-six fables. The two versions have different cover and spine material, title on spine, endpapers, page size, page cut, and tint on the top of the pages. That is, the version with London on its spine is larger, ...
Krilof and His Fables
(Strahan & Co. Publishers, 1871)
A happy find! This is my most extensive prose Krilof. Of his 201 fables, 148 are here. Many of those not here are reproductions of Aesop and LaFontaine. This edition adds some fifty-five fables to the ninety-three in ...
Krilof and His Fables
(Cassell & Company Ltd.,, 1871)

(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, ...
("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.
Chwedlau neu Ddammegion Aesop
