Abstract
The first thing one must say, I believe, about this book is: How marvelous that people were publishing fable books in Moscow and Leningrad in 1943! They were also fighting for their lives! This is a 79-page fragile paperbound volume 5 x 6½ featuring the pike, swan, and lobster trying to drag a cart in tan and red on its front cover. The full-page monochrome illustrations -- perhaps fifteen of them -- highlight Krylov's best-known fables. Though sometimes faint, I find them very well done. The Cat and the Cook (42) and Quartet (45) are good examples. There is a T of C at the end. It is a delicate little treasure.
