Pronin, Alexander and Barbara Pronin. A. S. Barnes and Company, 1975

Superior copy inside and out, with only the most minimal, unobtrusive wear to bindings, being of a pumpkin-colored cloth, with sharp and distinct gilt lettering to spine, and a virtually pristine text-block and endpapers. Dust jacket in Near Fine condition, protected by a paper-backed Brodart sleeve. A fine and due homage to the Russian peasant artisans who produced wood carvings, ceramics, tiles, toys, weavings, embroideries and other objects of utilitarian and decorative function. The Icon, the Lubok, lacquers, metal-working, and carpets get special play--a dozen major folk art media altogether. Double-column text, replete with black-and-white illustrations and several in full color. [14], 15-192 pp. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
