Small bookstore label to rear cover, else unmarked. Russian fable illustrated by Ivan Bilibin. From Wikipedia: Bilibin travelled in the Russian North, where he became fascinated with old wooden architecture and Russian folklore. He published his findings in the monograph Folk Arts of the Russian North in 1904. Another influence on his art was traditional Japanese prints. Bilibin gained renown in 1899, when he released his illustrations of Russian fairy tales.
