Picture Tales from the Russian
Karrik, Valerian Vilʹi͡amovich
Looks at first like a companion to More Russian Picture Tales (1914)--except that the Aesopic The Dog and the Cock (40 here) appears in both. An unusual 5 x 7 format with linen binding. The other eight tales and illustrations are delightful; The Fox and the Lobster may be the best known. The lobster grabs onto the fox's tail to arrive at the finish line as the fox does. The Gold Egg is not the Aesopic fable.
