To give our community more opportunities to learn something about book arts and book history, we decided to open the part of our digitized collection that before was shared only with our patrons.
There was something that attracted my attention in this book besides the subject. So, let me tell you about my recent find: this pamphlet about the history of the book written by a Russian literary scientist and bibliognost Vladimir Bush.
I found this book in an old books department in the Russian city of Novorossiysk. This sample of Soviet samizdat was supposedly made in 1970s and is literally a photo copy of a 19th-century book.
