    Adler's lattice equation has acquired the status of a master equation among 2D discrete integrable systems. In this paper we derive what we believe are the first explicit solutions of this equation. In particular it turns out to be necessary to establish a non-trivial seed solution from which soliton solutions can subsequently be constructed using the Bäcklund transformation. As a corollary we find the corresponding solutions of the Krichever–Novikov equation which is obtained from Adler's equation in a continuum limit.
