Our Notes & References

Unusual atlas of the celebrated German communities of the Russian empire – ‘Nemtsii’ [German] possibly coming from ‘nemyi’ [mute] because these communities would speak only German, and hence not Russian with natives… The atlas shows a general map, and more detailed maps of the regions of St. Petersburg, Saratov and Samara, and southern Ukraine (Odessa to Crimea).

Very rare: Worldcat locates only one holding in the US (Newberry Lib.) and four in Europe (Royal Danish Library, Universitätsbibl. Leipzig, Staatsbibl. zu Berlin, British Library), to which we could add a copy in Halle (Germany).
