|Ivan Krylov – Russia’s best-known fabulist.
Illustrated Envelop with original stamp with FDC cancellation
|Description||Ivan Andreyevich Krylov (February 13, 1769 – November 21, 1844) is Russia’s best-known fabulist and probably the most epigrammatic of all Russian authors. Formerly a dramatist and journalist, he only discovered his true genre at the age of 40. While many of his earlier fables were loosely based on Aesop’s and La Fontaine’s, later fables were original work, often with a satirical bent.|
