LADA, JOSEPH. CZECHOSLOVAK. (LADA) SVET ZVIEAT [The World of Animals]. no publication information [Prague:B. Koci]] circa 1920. 8vo (6 5/8 x 7 1/2"), cloth backed pictorial boards, VG+. A charming board picture book, this is illustrated by noted artist JOSEPH LADA with pictorial covers plus 20 full page color lithographs of humanized animals. A few lines of verse by Czech poet Petr Kricka are below each picture. Hurlimann (p.226) says his "fresh and genuine vision is timeless" and notes that Jiri Trnka's work is "barely thinkable without the splendid popular tales and drawings of his predecessor Joseph Lada." .
