Abstract
Here are 103 Krylovian fables -- of the 200 or so that he created -- translated into Lithuanian in a sturdy paperback book 6¼ x 9?. Many are illustrated with the familiar black-and-white illustrations of A. Laptyev. The book looks as though it may have been the private publication of Valaitis himself. Can this be the same Jonas Valaitis that was a prominent Lithuanian physician in Chicago and died in 2006? And might that 500 on the verso of the title-page indicate that 500 copies were printed? If so, that fact would only make this a more unusual treasure! The introduction concludes, apparently, with a remembrance of Krylov at the UN, with the likes of U Thant, John Kennedy, and Dag Hammarskjoldui. The place of publication on the title-page is Cikaga. I count twenty illustrations in all. From other versions using Laptyev's work, he seems to have done twenty-four illustrations. Not all the illustrations here are signed with the familiar A. ?. and a date like '46 or '47... There is an AI at the back. 201 pages.
