A treasury of books. 250 years of the Hermitage library. Exhibition catalogue


72,00 € tax incl.

The catalogue is devoted to the exhibition “Wonderful Collection of Book Treasures. 250 years to the Hermitage Library” , which was held from 7 December 2012 to 17 March 2013. The opening coincided with the Day of St. Catherine, the patron saint of the Hermitage. The jubilee exhibition showcased 234 books, the first of which had been received to the Library fund during the reign of Catherine the Great. Among them there are albums with engravings, geographic maps, books on military subjects, European and Russian editions of the Bible, a unique collection of imperial gift items and fashion magazines of the 18th – 20th centuries.

The handwritten catalogue of the first Library of Catherine the Great and the catalogue of the Library of Nicholas II demonstrate the way in which the Library fund developed from the 18th to the early 20th century. Items displayed at the exhibition reflect the 250 year old history of a rich book collection that nowadays belongs to the Hermitage Research Library.
