Mel Bach: Russian ‘publications provocateurs’ and the war against Ukraine

In her recent post Mel Bach talks about acquisition of inflammatory popular books published in Russia referring to Iryna Baturevych’s article about anti-Ukrainian publications. The topic that Mel addresses is very important and painful for all Slavonic librarians. It is also very useful to bring Chytomo to our the attention.

Thank you, Mel.

The First Ukrainian Printed Books (1574) from the Libraries in the UK

In 1574, two books were printed in Lviv: Acts and Epistles and Primer. There are three copies of Acts and Epistles in the UK. One is held at King’s College Library, Cambridge, and two – at the Bodleian Library (the copy at B.21.16.Th was digitized ).

The Bodleian Library also made a short film about this book, which is available on their Youtube channel.

Only two copies of the 1574 Primer have survived. One of them is held at the British Library.
