Yes and No Stories, Georgian Folk Tales, by Papashvily, Simon Lissim ill.

Yes and No Stories.

A beautifully produced book, illustrated by a Russian emigré fine artist and theatrical designer. Tales heard by the author as a child in Georgia. Told with an individual voice and unexpected humorous twists, for  as the old storyteller says him "a story is a letter that comes to us from yesterday. Each man who tells it adds his word to the message - and sends it on to tomorrow. So begin." A lovely book. Signed and briefly inscribed on the title page by Helen Papashvily.
NOTE: This book has been SOLD.
