What is an annotated bibliography
The economic and cultural transformations of the Petrine epoch facilitated the development of bibliography. With the introduction of secular type (1708) there appeared a general bibliography of literature, printed in this typeface. At the Academy of Sciences, established in St. Petersburg in 1725, a bibliography of abstracts came into being. During the years 1742–44 catalogs of the academy’s library were published. With the opening of a book shop under the auspices of the Academy of Sciences (1728) there also appeared a book trade bibliography. Subject bibliography came into being— historical (1736), geographical (1748), and a number of others. The development of bibliography in the 18th century was greatly influenced by M. V. Lomonosov, who put forth plans for abstracting scientific literature and called for the “more rapid spread in the republic of sciences of information about books” vol. 3, Moscow-Leningrad, 1952, p. 218). During the second half of the 18th century there appeared critical bibliographical sections in journals, as well as independent journals devoted entirely to this subject. G. L. Bakmeister published a bibliographical journal entitled (1772–89) in order to acquaint foreigners with Russian literature. A. major contribution to the development of Russian bibliography was made by N. I. Novikov, especially in his (1772). He also originated the first bibliographical journal in Russia, (St. Petersburg Learned Register; 1777). A number of valuable beginnings, including attempts to compile a complete enumeration of Russian books, were made by the bishop Damaskin (D. E. Semenov-Rudnev), N. N. Bantysh-Kamenskii, A. I. Bogdanov, and others.
