This collection contains newspapers of the Russian revolutionary era which are held in the archives of the Lehman Library at Columbia University, published on microfilm. The project was originally planned to reproduce approximately 100 newspaper titles published in Russia between the early 19th century and the post.Revolutionary 1920's. However, the project came to a halt after the reproduction of only 51 titles was completed. Among these can be found famous newspapers
which were continuously published for a long time such as "Московские вeдoмocти" (1756-1917), Journal de SL Pelersbourg (1825-1918),
'Московские" (1868- ), and "Руссккие ведомости" (1863-1918) and well as newspapers which had to cease publication after only a short
time, such as "Двадцатый век" (1906) which appeared briefly in 1906. The biggest drawback to using this collection is the relatively large
number of issues lacking. The following list of newspaper titles is compiled in alphabetical order. The bibliographic description of each title follows the oldest title
in the files of the Slavic Research Center. Most of these newspapers were published either daily or weekly. In cases where many issues
of a particular newspaper are lacking, the word 'incomplete' appears instead of the specific issue numbers which are lacking. The following
list provides information about each newspaper in this order: 1) Name of newspaper. 2) Place of publication. 3) Dates publication
commenced and ceased. 4) Frequency. 5) Holdings. 6)Numbers of reels of microfilm. 7) Numbers of microfilm reels. 8) Notes about any
changes in the newspaper's title.
