Description

Scarce collected edition. Cloth-backed colour Yaguzhinsky illustrated boards, 19 x 22 cm., 54+12+31+16 pp., decorated end-papers, gilt decorated chromolithograph illustrations by Bartram throughout. Four of Pushkin's stories bound together. Owner inscription to front end-paper (Lola Lubenec from her aunt), Viktor Gutmann’s (Oerlikon) neat stamp to title. In good condition, complete. Slightly shaken, inner joint cracked, contemporary owner inscription to f.e.p.. Minor signs of age and use. Clean. Boards illustrated by Sergey Yaguzhinsky, poster artist and in-house illustrator for publisher Sytin. Illustrated inside by Nikolai Bartram and reminiscent of Bilibin. Bartram is now best remembered as an avid collector and expert on children's toys. The present volume is published by the legendary Ivan Sytin, prolific publisher and, amongst much else, famous for children’s books. These stories were first published separately and this is a very rare example of the collected edition with the Yaguzhinsky cover.
