Extremely useful illustrated work of Imperial Military School and Civil Organizations previously unknown to collectors. A handbook for both the Imperial Rusian badge collector and military historian of Imperial military schools and civil societies in Imperial Russia.
While Andolenko’s 1960s work on the subject remains a classic, the authors further expanded the reach and research about Russia’s badges. They photographed and documented hundreds of specimens found in museums and private collections worldwide. When original examples could not be found, accurate color illustrations take their place. A ‘must have’ from beginner to advanced collector.
