ROMANOV DYNASTY.
ZVORIKIN, BORIS VASILEVICH, illustrator and designer. Letopisnyi i litsevoi izbornik doma Romanovykh [300th Annalistic and Illuminated Anthology of the House of the Romanovs.] Moscow: A. A. Levenson, 1913.
Oversized folio. 121 pp. Illustrated and designed by Boris Zvorykin and S. Yaguzhinskii. Original pictorial boards designed by Zvorykin. Slight rubbing to spine and board edges, occasional spotting to endpapers.

AN OPULENT ALBUM ISSUED TO COMMEMORATE 300 YEARS OF ROMANOV RULE. This was only one of many lavish tributes to the tricentennial of Romanov rule on the eve of World War I and just a few years prior to the Russian Revolution. Zvorykin was a follower of I.Y. Bilibin and worked in a similar manner, taking his inspiration from folk art.
