RSJ2.jpg Russian Satirical Journals, 1905-1907
The University of Chicago Library’s collection Russian Satirical Journals, 1905-1907 consists of 110 titles in 378 issues. It is primarily comprised of journals, but some newspapers, broadsides, and illustrated periodicals are also included. The full collection has been digitized. This collection documents some of the most important events of the period known as the first Russian Revolution of 1905-1907. It was during this unprecedented rise of national self-identity that the first Russian Constitution and Russian Parliament were initially created. The first Russian Revolution was a period of struggle for political, social and human rights, and the press, which had previously been subject to censorship, enjoyed a new freedom which had never before appeared in Russia.
