Spiashchaia Tsarevna [The Sleeping Princess].

Leipzig: Pavla Riube, (c. 1880). Small quarto. 8pp., + six plates laid in throughout. The chromolithographed images illustrate the major events of the story commonly known to English-speaking audiences as "Sleeping Beauty," from the princess's birth, to the pricking of her finger on the spindle, and, finally, to her reawakening by the prince. The tale varies slightly to better suit Eastern European readers, but the overarching story remains familiar. This particular edition was written anonymously, but it is based on the translation by Vasilii Zhukovskii, who first adapted "Sleeping Beauty" in the early nineteenth century. Bound in heavy pictorial wrappers, which have been expertly conserved. Expected toning throughout. Very good overall. Item #28795
