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); 8 chromolithographs in the text (3 full-page), manuscript synopsis of Stravinsky’s The Firebird and English translation inserted at the rear; publisher’s pictorial wrappers, small inscription to cover, overall a fine example.
