Slavonic Fairy Tales (page 1/2)


Images from Fairy Tales of the Slav Peasants and Herdsmen, From the French of Alex. Chodsko Translated and Illustrated by Emily J. Harding; George Allen, London, 1896.

The illustrator, Emily J. Harding (1877 – 1902) died more than 70 years ago, and the illustrations are therefore out of copyright.

I found this book online at complete with the pictures (at low resolution). Let me know if there’s an illustration you’d like me to scan (use the comment link on any of the pictures to get in touch).
