[Rare Russian AB-book] Maliutkina azbuka.

sostavil i illiustriroval, Aleksiei Eisner. (Saint Petersburg), Tovarishchestva M.O. Vol'f, (1903), (1),28 p., with chromolithographic illustrations on each page, original chromolithographic cardboard with cloth back, small folio (minimal defects, some wear to corners).

Extremely rare, we were able to find only a few copies in libraries worldwide. The first leaf is printed on one side with apparently removable figures (they have a white border for inserting or vertical pasting). After the title page, a colophon with date 1903 and an introduction by Eisner follow 6 pages with the alphabet each time facing 3 illustrations. The remainder of the book consists of verses and aphorisms with the letters of the alphabet, each time provided with illustrations. The boy Vanja appears to be the main character.
