Bibliographic Details

Title: The Book of the Bear, Being Twenty-One Tales...

Publisher: Nonesuch Press, London

Publication Date: 1926

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Very Good

Edition: First Edition.


Cloth-backed decorative paper over boards, gilt-stamped lettering on spine; with woodcuts printed in black, red, and brown; and a musical score. Boards rubbed, heavily scuffed along the edges; spine tips and corners bumped; frontispiece roughly opened along top edge, with a few small closed tears. Nonetheless, a pretty little volume from the Nonesuch, with tales by Remizov, Krylov, Pushkin, Tolstoy, and more -- including folk tales, scripture, and a scary epilogue addressed to bad children.
