Descripción

8vo., Third Edition, with wood-engraved illustrations in the text; original green decorative cloth, upper board blocked and lettered in gilt (lower board repeating pattern in blind), gilt back, uncut, plum endpapers, a remarkably well-preserved, bright, clean copy. A PRESENTATION COPY FROM THE TRANSLATOR WITH HIS HOLOGRAPH INSCRIPTION ON HALF-TITLE VERSO. With the well-known binder's ticket of Virtue & Son on rear paste-down. Krylov's 'Fables' were first published in Russian in nine volumes between 1809 and 1843. William Ralston, the renowned Russian scholar working from the British Museum, produced the first English translation (of ninety-three fables) in 1868. This third edition includes a further fifty-five fables, the total comprising all but half a dozen of Krylov's original corpus. Despite the work's contemporary popularity, all early printings are now very hard to find. ANY WORK HOLOGRAPHED BY RALSTON IS EXTREMELY SCARCE. N° de ref. de la librería 18785
