Sto Basni I. Krilov
Popov, N. E
Wonderful illustrations grace these fables. Some are strange repeaters, like the crazy farmer (72) or the wily fox (142), often set around pillars. Others play around the book numbers. The best, though often printed too dark, are the full-page illustrations, for example: regal chickens (31), the cock and the pearl (57), the mouse and the rat (107), the monkey and the mirror (117), the praying frog (119), WC (135), the strong ant (139), the dog and the horse (165), and the cock and the cuckoo (173). At the end you will find a life (?) and chronology of Krilov, a proper-name appendix, and T of C.
