St. Petersburg: Herm, 2012. sewn pb. This is the catalogue of an extensive Hermitage exhibition that aims to show the main stages of writing and written culture on the basis of works originally collected over many years and in many places by the eminent scholar Nikolai Likhachev. Likhachev was a pioneer in Old Russian and Byzantine sphragistics, an expert in palaeography, genealogy, numismatics, and Russian and Byzantine icon painting. Likhachev’s research was inseparable from his collecting activities which were chiefly targeted on recreating the history of writing, from the Ancient Orient to the nineteenth century. Taking Likhachev’s special interest as a springboard curators have written introductions to each section that are detailed and informative: the catalogue is thus an illustrated history of the ways in which civilizations developed through words. 600 pp., 9 ½ x 11 ½ ins., 603 color illus., sewn cl., Rus., with title page and summary in ENGLISH.
