None currently available
by Lucy Maxym. Siamese Imports, Inc. 1986. 8.75" x 11.5"

Second of two classic books on the subject by Lucy Maxym. Dozens of beautiful photographs of lacquer boxes with accompaning fairy tales and stories make these books a must for everyone interested in this art. Order yours today!

Part II includes an introduction, and more of the fairy tales including: Twelve Months; The Scarlet Flower; Emelya and the Magic Pike; The Princess and the Seven Bogatyrs; Silver Hoof; The Seven Semeons; Finist the Falcon; The Flying Ship; The Tale of the Young Guard and Merchant Kalashnikov; Sivka-Burka; Maria Morevna; The Three Kingdoms; Sleeping Beauty. It also gives information on different storytellers, other legends, defenders and rulers of Ancient Rus. And, of course, as in Part I, a stunning display of boxes.

Please note that both Part 1 and Part 2 of this book, probably the best of their type, which combine the magic of the Russian fairy tales with the artistry of the Russian lacquer box, are out of print. The copies that we have available are used, but in very good condition with only minor scuffing or edgewear to the dust jacket.
