Ancient Russian Books Displayed in Moscow

The Book Apostles exhibition has been opened today in the Kolomenskoye Memorial Estate.

      The exposition housed in the Palace of Tsar Alexey Mikhaylovich is dedicated to the beginning and spreading of book publishing in Russia. The year 2014 marks the 450th anniversary since the publication of the first Russian precisely dated printed book Apostle. It was printed under the decree of Ivan the Terrible by the printer Ivan Fedorov at the Moscow printing yard in 1564.

      Presently there are about 70 copies left all around the world. The memorial estate for the first time presents a very rare copy of the first printed Apostle, which is part of the museum collection.

      The visitors will also see some unique books that played their role in the history of the Russian education. 

The exhibition runs till November 16.
