About This Item

Moscow: Imperatorskii Rossiiskii Istoricheskii Muzei imeni Imperatora Aleksandra III; Tipo-Lit. Torgovogo doma Korkin, Veideman i Ko, 1911-1912. Quartos (26.8 × 18 cm). Original printed wrappers; [4], 1-190, 191-382, 383-597, [1], and [1], 1-77, [2] pp. Three photogravure plates, two with protective tissue guards. Occasional light wear to spine extremities; bookstore marks partially erased to rear wrappers; very good copies. Complete catalog, in four volumes, of the collection built by the Moscow merchant Aleksei Bakhrushin (1853-1904) over three decades. Bakhrushin's library contained over 25.000 volumes, largely on Russian history, art, and literature, including reference works and Rossica in foreign languages, which the catalog lists alphabetically. The fourth installment adds foreign-language books collected by Bakhrushin, also mainly on topics relating to Russia, as well as on library science and art history. During Bakhrushin's life, the library was used widely by scholars and fellow collectors, as documented by his guestbook, which contains entries by Pavel Efremov, Ivan Zabelin, D. V. Ul'ianinskii and many others. In 1904, after his death, the collection was bequeathed to the Russian Historical Museum located just off Red Square in Moscow, along with Bakhrushin's extensive holdings in paintings, decorative arts, antiques, posters, and other printed ephemera. In 1938, the greater part of the books was transferred to the State Public Historical Library. The publication of the catalogs was financed by the collector's widow, Anna S. Bakhrushina. With three photogravures showing Bakhrushin and the collection at his home in Vorontsovo Pole, Moscow (vol. I) and a frontis showing the new Bakhrushin room at the Historical Museum, which housed the collection after his death.
