Bibliograf

 

A monthly journal published in St. Petersburg between 1884 and 1894. (In 1884 only the trial issue no. 1 was published.) It was edited by N. M. Lisovskii.

Besides articles about books and historical literary material, Bibliograf contained current information about books, maps, and plans for towns, parks, and so forth being published in Russian, French, and English, as well as journal articles and periodical publications in Russian. Of considerable value was the section entitled “Rossica” for the period 1885–90. The subject matter of the articles in Bibliograf was not systematized—that is, it did not support a particular school of thought. Certain articles, devoted primarily to folk literature, were written from reactionary points of view.
