St. Petersburg: typ. Akademii Nauk, 1891. [2], 78 pp. 22,5x15,5 cm. Without wrappers. Very good, occasional foxing, with later spine and back cover. Very rare. Offprint from Sbornik otdeleniya russkogo yazyka i slovesnosti Akademii nauk (V. 52, #7) [i.e. Digest of the Department of Russian Language of Academy of Sciences]. This is a book of very valuable additions to ''Biographical Index of Russian Female Writers'' by N. Golitsyn (St. Petersburg: typ. V.S. Balasheva, 1889). Nikolai Golytsyn (1836-1893) was a Russian bibliographer. During his life he'd been gathering information on Russian female writers. Even though the index was criticized by his contemporaries this was a very important first work of such kind. Ponomarev's additions consisted of two parts: review of the index and supplement to it. In the first part he tried to answer the question 'in which genres female writers were mostly working' and gathered their names into thematic groups - fiction, bibliography, drama, history, natural sciences, critics, medicine, etc. Ponomarev's supplement to the index is quite significant. He provided 419 names which were not mentioned in the index at all as well as a number of important corrections. Worldcat locates copies in Columbia, Yale.
