Stahl (i.e., Pierre Jules Hetzel) as a co-author. It was republished later in many different editions and was awarded a prize by the Academie francaise . The French editions, entitled usually as Maroussia- dapres la legende de Marko Wovtschok par P.J. Stahl, stimulated translations into German, Italian and English. This 1890 Cornelia W. Cyr English translation which gives no credit to the original author is the earliest book publication in English of a work by a Ukrainian writer included in this bibliography. Records exist, however, to indicate an even earlier translation of Maroussia by Sarah Herrick Kidder published ca. 1887. If and when a copy of this earlier publication is obtained, the verified bibliographical information will be included in the Supplement. The 1890 Cyr edition is illustrated with 10 full page black and white illustrations by an unidentified artist (-the signature on the engravings appears to be THS or T.H. Schuler).
