A beautiful children’s book, finely illustrated in colour.
Tales illustrated by Bilibin are among the most famous children’s books both within and outside of Russia. One of the nation’s most influential illustrators, Bilibin first came to prominence when some of these folkloric illustrations were shown as part of an exhibition by the Mir Iskusstva.
Landscape folio (25.5 x 32.5 cm). 12 pp., 7 chromolithographs in the text (4 full-page). Original pictorial wrappers. Dated 1907 on title-page but Bilibin’s illustration on p.2 is dated 1910. A fine example.
