Krylov by Rayev

1961 Twelve cards displaying colored paintings of Krylov's fables by E.M. Rayev. 4⅛" x 5⅞". Moscow. $24.99 from Andrey Nosov, Narva, Estonia, through Ebay, Jan., '06. I have long been an admirer of Rayev's work. Here are twelve of them gathered in a wrap-around cover with details from two of the images: "Cock and Pearl" and "Geese." The images included here are, as far as I can surmise from the pictures and titles:



Cock and Pearl


Crow and Fox

Speckled Sheep

Cat and Nightingale

Wolf and Lamb

Pike and Cat

Monkey and Mirror


Wolf in the Kennels (Napoleon)

Cock and Cuckoo

Pig Under the Oak
