Rare antique missal books with old engravings at the Odessa Literature Museum.


Masterpieces of travelling printers. Odessa Museum has shown are missal books from the Lavra, “Lexicon of Slavonic” and “Evangelin uchitelne”


Until October 29 in the Odessa Literary Museum (Lanzheronovskaya, 2) there is an exhibition of old printed, simply old editions and old engravings, prepared in cooperation with the Museum of Books and Printing of Ukraine. Most of the publications presented in the exhibition “Travels of Printers” can only be read by a specialist in the Old Church Slavonic language, but the aesthetic and historical value of the rarities is very high.

Unique editions were issued by the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, the Lvov Stavropigiy Brotherhood, the Lviv Printing House of Mikhail Slezka, the itinerant printing press of Tranquilion Stavrovetsky and the Odessa typolithography of Efim Fesenko, which worked in the late 19th – early 20th centuries on Rishelievskaya.
