The library has an unpublished descriptive list of holdings entitled "Harvard Collection 1800–1915" (from which the preceding information was drawn).


The Hoover Institution at Stanford, California, also has the Osobye zhurnaly of the Council of Ministers; a microfilm copy is available for purchase. Nearly all remaining items cited above appear to be unique in the United States.

The materials described below, arranged in call number order, are collections of documents printed but not published, i.e., they circulated among a handful of high tsarist officials. The legal projects and proposals are accompanied by ministerial reports, materials of conferences or commissions created to consider the question, and related items. The items which follow are in callnumber order, listed by subject (approximate at times), and not in chronological sequence.
