Trial until 28 June: Imperial Russia’s Illustrated Press

Oxford users are invited to trial Imperial Russia’s Illustrated Press.

This collection from Brill contains online versions of five rare weekly magazines: Iskry (1901-1917), Sinii zhurnal (1910-1918), Zhivopisnaia Rossiia (1901-1905), Russkaia illustratsiia (1915) and Vseobshchii zhurnal (1910-1912).

None of these weeklies are possessed by any of the Bodleian Libraries. They open a wide window on Russian cultural, social and political life of Russia just before the Russian Revolution.

The trial ends 28th June. Please send feedback to Nick Hearn at
