In the realm of Russian and East European Visual Resources, The New York Public Library has few peers outside of Russia. This volume describes nearly 900 heavily illustrated books, journals, posters, engravings and prints, as well as original works of art on paper, in the Library's collections, principally from the 18th to the early 20th centuries. In the words of art historian John E. Bowlt, the 'books, albums, folios in The New York Public Library constitute a unique collection for the study of Russian art, architecture, the applied arts and material culture in the Western world.'
