The "Brockhaus and Efron Encyclopedic Dictionary" (Russian: Энциклопедический словарь Брокгауза и Ефрона) (35 volumes, small; 86 volumes, large) is, in its scope and style, the Russian counterpart to the 1911 Britannica. It contains 121 240 articles, 7 800 images, and 235 maps. Published in Imperial Russia in 1890-1906, the comprehensive encyclopedia was a joint venture of Leipzig and St Petersburg publishers. The articles were written by first-rank Russian scholars of the day, including Dmitry Mendeleyev, and Vladimir Solovyov. Reprints of this work appeared following the collapse of the Soviet Union.
