Abstract
I include this book as a testimony to someone's love of a book. It is in wretched condition but has been worked over and resown. Someone wanted this book to survive! At the end of the book it is missing two leaves and an endpaper. At the beginning it is missing the frontispiece portrait of Krylov and pages 7-10 and 20-21. Page 5 is pasted in backwards between 14 and 15! I can tell all this because it is otherwise an identical copy of a book we have from 1951, with only the title-page date changed to 1950. As I mentioned of that 1950 copy, this book is very similar to a pair of copies with the same bibliographical information but dated to 1948. The typesetting seems different. The first illustration, FC, has moved onto the title-page. As I wrote of those copies, this book seems a standard presentation of Krylov's fables, with a rich assortment of A. Laptyev's 1947 illustrations. This edition adds an AI of titles at the end before the (only partial here) T of C. The illustrations are full-page black-and-white presentations, and I count eighteen of them here plus the title-page's nineteenth by contrast with the twenty illustrations in those other two copies. This book has five silhouettes on its front cover, two of them partially covered here by tape pasted over the canvas binding.
