Spiashchaia Tsarevna [The Sleeping Princess].

Leipzig: Pavla Riube, (c. 1880). Small quarto. 8pp. plus six plates laid in throughout. The chromolithographed plates illustrate the stages of the story, commonly known to American audiences as "Sleeping Beauty", from the princess' birth, to the pricking of her finger on the spindle, 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 is anonymous, but is based on that by Vasilii Zhukovskii, who first translated and adapted "Sleeping Beauty" in the early nineteenth century. Bound in heavy pictorial wrappers, which have had some expert conservation. Expected toning throughout. Very good overall. Item #28795

Price: $1,250.00
