An exceptionally fine example of this beautiful fairytale with additional English translation.
This copy also includes a later English translation insert of the tale, printed and sold by Russian Peasant Industries of Old Bond Street. The shop became a popular focal point of Mayfair at the beginning of the 20th Century, in part thanks to the huge success of Diaghilev’s Russian Ballet seasons in London.
Folio (325 x 255 mm); 9 chromolithographs in the text, (3 full-page); publisher’s chromolithographed wrappers, with additional English translation inserted at the rear, small ink initials (L.G.) inscribed on cover, a fine copy.
