Feodor Stepanovich Rojankovsky (1891–1970), was a Russian émigré illustrator. He is well known both for children's book illustration. He came to America in 1941: Rojankovsky again became a refugee with the German invasion of France in 1940, at which point he emigrated to the USA. This disruption in his life is hardly reflected in his output: he produced seven illustrated books in 1942. Over his professional career he produced more than seventy-five illustrated childrens books, a half dozen of which he also wrote. His style of illustrating was imaginative with a great sense of use of color. The present volume is a very well preserved copy in the original jacket. (Inventory #: G01568)
