Basni LaFontaine (Russian)
I regret not being able to put down more information on this lovely and much-used pamphlet. It measures 6¼ x 8? and has 24 pages. It has cardboard covers including chromolithographs on both front and back covers, of the wolf as shepherd on the front and mother bird and chicks on the back. It contains eight fables. Its spectacular feature consists, I believe, in the six great chromolithographs: The Mouse, the Rooster, and the Cat; Two Goats; Mother Bird and Chicks; The Wolf As Shepherd; FC; and DS. The spine has been crudely taped. There are multiple creases on the front cover, with a chip missing in the lower right corner. I am surprised that someone in Russia in 1915 was producing high-class books like this!
