"Russophilia" - Keeping the Public in Public Domain

Yesterday I admitted my love of Russian culture.  It's true, be it literature, folklore, music, dance, art, I'm a Russophile.  Today I want to share my list of Russian folktale anthologies and where their contents might be indexed for easy access when seeking stories for storytelling.  I also used a pair of graphics by Lucy Fitch Perkins, whose credit was accidentally omitted in the Project Gutenberg copy of Folktales from the Russian by Verra de Blumenthal.
