Frolov M.A. Literature, Journalism and Politics in the Russian Press of the Turn of the 19th–20th cs.: Materials for the Annotated List of Pre-revolutionary Daily Newspapers
The publication is an experience of a preliminary bibliographic review of pre-revolutionary newspapers, the highest publication activity of which occurred at the end of the 19th – beginning of the 20th c., and on the pages of which were regularly published famous russian writers, poets, critics, publicists, journalists, historians and politicians. The annotated list, which takes into account not only metropolitan but also regional newspapers, is not closed (and certainly does not pretend to be complete in any way), but basic. Its preparation is due to the main research objectives of the scientific project «Russian literature and journalism in the pre-revolutionary era: forms of interaction and methodology of analysis», one of which is the compilation of annotated bibliographic murals of the content of key daily pre-revolutionary newspapers (here we should take into account the extremely small number of existing murals and consolidated thematic catalogs). This list, however, has a general application (heuristic) value for those researchers who are engaged in the study of the topic to which it is dedicated, or, in any case, the period covered by this publication (1900–1917; these chronological boundaries, as the reader will note, in our publication are often adjusted depending on the duration of the existence of a particular publication). This publication is one small step on the way to creating a broad source base based on the material of the pre-revolutionary periodical press. The structure of the bibliographic description is simple: the name of the newspaper and its subtitle (changes in the name are specifically stipulated), the period of existence, party and other affiliation or orientation of the publication, its format, the address of the main office or editorial office, lists of publishers, editors, authors, information about the publication’s appendices and indexes of content, the availability of sets of newspapers in major libraries, publications dedicated to a particular publication, and preserved archival materials.
