|Ivan Krylov – Russia’s best-known fabulist.
Illustrated Envelop with original stamp with mistake in number of anniversary
|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.|
|Type||Illustrated Envelop with original stamp. Must be “215 years Anniversary of the birth”. In mistake is written “225 years Anniversary of the birth”|
|Published by/for:||Ministry of Communications, 1983|
