    Literary Heritage. Vol. 104: “Literary Heritage” for 80 years: A Guide to Volumes 1–103, yrs. 1931–2011. — Book two: Index of Illustrations / Ed. by N.V. Kotrelev, M.I.

    Abstract:

    The Index of Illustrations is an integral part of the definitive guide “Literary Heritage For 80 Years. A Guide to Volumes 1–103 yrs. 1931–2011”. There are nearly 12,000 illustrations in 103 volumes of “Literary Heritage”. The search for content spanned small and large museums, archives, and libraries in Russia, with many illustrations published for the first time ever. Other materials were sourced from public and private collections within the country and from abroad. The resulting illustrative content in “Literary Heritage” forms a massive, powerful visual projection of Russian authors, aspects of their family and everyday life, the spectrum of cultural and political professions, and portraits of actors in life and as performers on the stages of domestic and foreign theaters. The authors emphasized reproducing autographs including unpublished manuscripts, letters, and dedications on photographs and in books. Of great importance is the replication of printed materials — illustrations from the works of Russian authors as representative examples of typography. Finally, we should highlight many illustrations that give the viewer an idea about the environment of the authors, including memorials and monuments. The Index of Illustrations serves as a key to this iconic collection of materials, cataloging cutlines in order of their appearance in the volumes and respective location within each book. Cutlines are expanded on the illustrations’ theme — the subjects of the portraits, the groups gathered for specific purposes, the authors of the manuscripts, etc. They indicate the artist or photographer of the original illustration and its current location (museum, archive, etc.). In addition, a cross-reference of over 7,000 names accompanies the Index.
