The School of Slavonic and East European Studies in partnership with the British Library commemorate the sixteenth-century origins of printing in Russia and Ukraine with an international conference on the printer Ivan Fedorov at the British Library.

The British Library holds one of the most impressive collections of Fedorov’s editions in the West, including a copy of his Apostol of 1564 originating from the collection of the famous impresario Sergei Diaghilev, a copy of the 1574 edition of Fedorov's Primer (an extremely rare edition which has survived only in two copies), and a copy of the Ostroh Bible which may have originated from the library of Ivan the Terrible. Centred around these unique copies and organized by Sergei Bogatyrev (UCL SSEES) and Katia Rogatchevskaia (British Library), the conference will focus on the activities of Fedorov in the international context of early printing.
