dc.description.abstractThis book is in the same series as my 1954 edition of Eliezar Shteinbarg, illustrated by Nachum Gutman. They both come from the same publisher and use the same artist. This book may have had an original printing date of 1949. Like the Shteinbarg copy, this book is disintegrating as I use it. The back cover is separated. But the sketches and line-drawings by Nachum Gutman are a delight! It is easy to recognize old friends in Krylov, starting with FC on 1 and WL on 19. A favorite illustration of mine is The Monkey with the Spectacles on 27. Also nicely done is The Ass and the Nightingale on 79. It is a joy to bring this book together with other fable books. I hope we can keep it alive! The Old Man Planting a Tree on 108 takes a different perspective on the scene than I have noticed before. Is that Trishka's Kaftan on 139? This fellow needs some more clothes to cover his body! I am struck reading through this book how much Krylov was indebted to La Fontaine. One last question: On 251 is that the wife visiting her husband in hell? Again, the cloth front cover has an embossed picture of the poet.en_US
