Checklist of Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian Avant-Garde and Modernist Books, Serials and Works on Paper at The New York Public Library and Columbia University Libraries
The manifold collections of Russian, Ukrainian and Belarusian avant-garde publications in the New York Public and Columbia University Libraries are as impressive in their breadth as they are significant in their history. They have become more than a singular research resource for Slavicists, and more than a telling record of the striking inventiveness that occurred in Eastern Europe early in the last century. Indeed, these rich holdings are essential for today’s scholars and for an ever-growing public keenly interested in the art, culture, and political history of Eastern and East-Central Europe during a period of dramatic and revolutionary change. Nonetheless, it is through the visual and literary history that the two collections document that one might best appreciate these holdings’ broadest value.
