Books from «Faust's Study»

The special repository of rare books was constructed in the National Library of Russia (then Imperial Library) in 1857. The room was styled as a room of a medieval scholar. Over the past more than 150 years, the Library has built a tradition of calling it «Faust's Study». Each of the thousands of books, held here, is a masterpiece by early printers, of great historic, scientific and cultural value.
You can learn more about some of them by visiting our virtual exhibitions.
