150th anniversary of "Crime and Punishment"

2016 sees the 150th anniversary of the first edition of "Crime and Punishment". To celebrate the anniversary and to accompany the Dostoevsky Day UK, UCL SSEES Library has created this guide, which provides a brief overview of audio-visual materials in UCL SSEES Library's collection dedicated to "Crime and Punishment". The guide also includes title pages of the first editions of the book held by UK libraries as well as listing the events that took place across the UK to commemorate the 150th anniversary.

We are grateful to our collegues from UCL Special Collections, The British Library, Cambridge University Library and the Taylor Institution Library, Bodleian Libraries for their support.
