Scope and Content Note
Jones's and Morris's manuscript is a history of imperial Russia beginning with the earliest records of Russian history and extending to the revolutions of 1917. It is divided into a preface and eighteen chapters, the last one consisting of a chronology. Jones and Morris organized this history chronologically, according to rulers, from the Riurik Dynasty to Lenin, including two chapters devoted respectively to the arts in Russia and to Russian fiction in the nineteenth century. A list of suggested readings concludes each chapter.
Several pages of notes form part of the manuscript. Chapter Eight contains a handwritten page between pages 2 and 2a, a typewritten note between pages sixteen and seventeen, and two handwritten pages following page seventeen; a handwritten page occurs between pages seven and eight in Chapter Nine as well.
