About This Item

St. Petersburg,: Eksped. Zagotov. gos. bumag , 1901. Paperback. Very Good. BILIBIN, Ivan Ya[kovlevich] . 10pp., Illustrated with chromolithographs throughout, some of these full-page. Bound in original chromolithographed wrappers. On verso of the front cover is There is an inscription in ink ‘With best wishes for One Shree at 4, the Grove from Auntie Ada’ . The book has recently been professionally repaired, the spine and corner creases strengthened. There is some light off setting, but generally in very good condition, as quite often with these chromolithographic printed books, the oils in the ink stick together causing surface damage. There are a couple of small incidences of this, but not much. What is very interesting about this book –which I haven’t seen before, inserted is an English Translation. It is printed on a folded sheet on different paper-This has some light foxing. It must have been sold in England as the insert is published by Russian Peasant Industries and advertises the book for sale at 2/6d. (A weekly wage for workers then-if not two weeks). Size 12.5 x 10 inches (32.5 x 25.5 cm).
