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), while the text includes statistics on these populations and regions.
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).
