    An excellent example of a richly illustrated French compilation of Bilibin's famous tales which he first published in Russian at the beginning of the 20th century, also included are a few stories which he had not previously illustrated such as 'Salt' and 'The Cold'. The master of depicting Russian folklore, Bilibin continued to create charming children's books after emigrating to Paris in 1925.

Ayroy, eight illustrations in colour (pasted in), nine full-page woodcut engravings in black, further illustrations in the text as well as decorative borders, lettrines and headpieces, all after Ivan Bilibin, blue patterned endpapers; original richly illustrated gilt cloth, a pristine example.
