Part I gives interesting and useful information on the technology behind the boxes, about the different villages involved in the art and the prominent artists in those villages. It also includes the following fairy tales: Tsar Saltan; The Humpbacked Pony; Vasilisa the Beautiful; The Firebird, Tsarevich Ivan and the Gray Wolf; Rusalka; General Toptiggin; The Frog Princess; The Fisherman and the Fish; The Old Man and the Hares; Alyonushka; The Snowmaiden; Morozko; Prince Igor; Sadko; The Girl with the Golden Hair; The Stone Flower; The Golden Cockerel; The Merchant-Peddlers; Ruslan and Ludmilla.

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.
