Contemporary brown boards, green paper labels to spines with gilt lettering, paper shelf marks; slightly rubbed. Uncommon work on Saint Petersburg published on the occasion of the first jubilee of the Imperial capital. The work is structured chronologically and describes history of the city from the reign of its founder Peter the Great until the epoch of Alexander I. The city's impressive growth within one century is clearly visible on multiple large maps accompanying the text and dating from 1716 up until 1805. The book is dedicated to the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna, who, like the author himself, had German routes. Reimers saw the rapid development of the city as a result of the iron will of the Russian rulers, who wished to turn their residence into a paradise on Earth by any means. The author illustrates it with many contemporary testimonies and anecdotes. For example he tells about Paul I's urgent order to turn the Nevsky Prospect into a green alley in the middle of severe winter in 1799 – 1800. To deliver a result "here and now", pits for trees were heated with boiling water and fire, and seedlings were brought from the Imperial gardens and purchased at very high prices from private individuals. Not surprisingly, in the next several months the trees died and the process had to be repeated from the scratch. Reimers' account serves also as a valuable guide to the city at the height of its splendour, containing descriptions of the landmarks of the Imperial capital and the city's glorious art collections, as well as of the public institutions, education and medical facilities, and businesses. The Reimers' work is rare when complete with all the plans. A copy in the collection of the Russian National Library lacks two plans. Our copy has additionally a very rare index to plans of Saint Petersburg, 1807 bound in. We could locate only one copy of this title in WorldCat - in the collection of the Erfurt University library. ______________________________ ?????? ??????? ????????? ???????? ??????? ??? ???????? ?????????????? ? ??????? ???????? ?????? ?????????? ??????? ? ?????????????? ?? ?????????????? ?????????? ???????????-?????? ????? ????????? ????????????? ? ????? ????????? ?? ?????????? ???????????? — ?? ?????????? ?????? —- ????? ???????? ?? ????? ????????? ??????????
