The following information comes from Marek's copy, which seems to contradict some of the details from Douglas Anderson: "Хоббит, или Туда и Обратно: Сказочн. повесть / Пер. сангл. Н.Рахмановой // Забытый День Рождения: Сказки английских писателей: Пер. сангл./ Сост. О.Колесникова; Послесл. Н.Шерешевской; Илл. А.Маркевича. - М.: Правда, 1990. - С.339-580."

Here, the book editor is listed as O. Kolesnikova, Hobbit translated by N. Rakhmanova, N. Shereshevsky (poetry). And the illustrator is listed as А.Маркевича (A.Markewica).
