A wonderfully illustrated children's tale in Russian art nouveau binding.

Alexander Kruglov (1852 - 1915) was a popular children's author in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Russia. The writer's family originated from the formerly great city of the North, Velikiy Ustyug and Kruglov often drew on the traditional tales and mysticism of the Komi people in his writing. A disciple of Dostoevsky he felt an affinity with the rural peasantry of his native region which was evident in his stories and well received by his readers.
