European Slavs and the Peoples of Russia: [Published] in Commemoration of the 140th Anniversary of the First Ethnographic Exhibition Held in 1867

St. Petersburg: Slavia, 2008. sewn cl. The panoply of costumes of the peoples of the Russian Empire published here not only documents an extraordinary variety of nations and cultures but conveys the beauty of forms, patterns, and colors that characterized traditional clothing. Related to both folk art and fashion, these examples of costume constitute an illuminating source for many avenues of research. Drawings, paintings, and photographs create the context for the illustrations of actual costumes in the Museum of Ethnography (St. Petersburg). The introductory chapter identifies the men and women who spearheaded the 1867 exhibition and explains the novelty of forming ethnographic collections in the nineteenth century, which is a significant episode in the history of European museums. 232 pp., 9 x 13 ins., 367 color illus., Rus. or ENGLISH.
