TOLSTOI [OR TOLSTOY], COUNT LEO. - Ivan the Fool or The Old Devil and the Three Small Devils, also A Lost Opportunity and Polikushka ... translated by Count Norraikow.

 1392847530,
NY, Webster 1891. Octavo publisher's illustrated pale green cloth blocked in red and black; 172pp, illustrations by Valerian Gribayedoff. Spine a little dull and rubbed but quite a good copy for such a vulnerable binding. ¶ First edition of this translation; I believe Ivan the Fool had appeared in a translation by Dole but I'm not sure about the other two stories. Norraikow is polite but firm that the translations he has seen, often via French translations, are "far from accurate".
