Abstract

The article characterizes representation of results of historical-legal research in the second half of the XIX - early XX centuries. A wide range of sources is used. The basic concepts are the history of intellectual culture and book culture as its component. Intellectual culture is understood as cumulative mental and verbal resources of society that creates and uses ideas putting them into circulation among its contemporaries through various means of communication. Scientific and journalistic works by A.N. Afanasyev, A.G. Brickner, A.D. Gradovsky, I.I. Dityatin, V.N. Leshkov, A.V. Lokhvitsky, K.P. Pobedonostsev, N.V. Reutsky, B.N. Chicherin, P.K. Shchebalsky have been analyzed. It is noted that works on historical-legal topics were published by the leading experts in this area in the so-called “fat” magazines, which were the means of scientific knowledge dissemination. The article reveals specifics of publishing individual monographs and collected scientific papers the texts first appeared in press and then were published as separate editions turning into a part of book culture. Besides, in some cases publications in magazines could give authors an opportunity to continue their monographic studies. Most of the papers belonged to the Moscow University graduates and scholars, who were colleagues and friends with M.N. Katkov. They used the services of the printing house «Katkov and K°» and published their works in «The Russian Herald». The author concludes that the book culture and periodicals were an important component of intellectual culture of the period under review. They contributed to representation of academic historical-legal knowledge by introducing achievements of scientific jurisprudence to educated society.
