This is a wonderful story book for children even if they don't know a word of French. However if they do have a little French, it is not that difficult a read. This book is also of interest to crafters as the illustrations by Ivan Bilibine are without equal.

The book contains 7 children's stories of unknown authorship, translated from Russian to French by Ludmilla Makowsky-Schnitzer (known as Luda). The hightlights of the book are the marvelous illustrations by the great Russian illustrator Ivan Bilibine.

The book is beautifully constructed. Each page has a frame of gold even around the text. The illustrations were done around the cusp of the 19th-20th centuries. The illustrations are all signed and dated. Those dates I can make out are 1899 which means they were done early in Bilibine's career and are in that rich style of the Edwardian era and early Art Nouveau decoration.

Bilibine died during the seige of Stalingrad during WWII. The originals of these works are at the Guznak Museum in Moscow.

The book is hard cover (no dust jacket as published) and was published by Editions du Sorbier in Paris. The book was copyrighted in 1949 and published in 1997. Pages are not numbered.

This is a really special book. The quality of the paper, the presentation and the illustrations will make it a book to keep and pass to the next generation.
