Printed books

Works cover a variety of subjects connected with Russia. The printed works date from 1736 up until 1995, but the majority of the books date from the early 20th century. The earlier works mostly cover aspects of Russian language. The collection contains early examples of polyglot dictionaries, English to Russian dictionaries, and a Russian to German phrasebook. The later works, dating from the late 19th century and 20th century, focus more on Russia's political situation, and on Russian literature, particularly the writings of Tolstoy.
