В книгу включены шесть известных сказок Александра Сергеевича Пушкина, созданные в период с 1825 по 1834 годы. Среди своих современников Пушкин был настоящим знатоком русской песни и сказки и планировал даже издать сборник с историческим предисловием. В 1824 году Пушкин пишет брату: «Знаешь ли мои занятия? До обеда пишу записки, обедаю поздно, после обеда езжу верхом, вечером слушаю сказки — и вознаграждаю тем недостатки проклятого своего воспитания. Что за прелесть эти сказки! Каждая есть поэма!»
Книгу украшают иллюстрации замечательного русского художника Ивана Билибина, не уступающие по своей красоте волшебному пушкинскому языку.

The print font would not be so terrible if the paper wasn't see through, thus you are not only attempting to read gothic print, but you also have to contend with the shadows of the letters from the other side of the page. Apparently, this book is "print-on-demand" and it shows. I ordered it on Feb 4th, the page on the back says that it was printed on Feb 5th, 2013. I received it on Feb 7th, 2013. So, the quality is sacrificed for the ability to print the book after it is ordered. Still, a week later I went into Philadelphia for something and took the time to stop at a russian bookseller. Found a very similar book there, for about the same price, but the quality of the...
