    We received a facsimile edition of the first "Primer" in 2019 

    The presentation of the facsimile edition of the first "Primer" (1618) was held in the Vitebsk Regional Library named after V. I. Lenin. The publication was presented by the Deputy Director of the National Library of the Republic of Belarus Alexander Susha.
    This is a three-volume collection, which consists of a facsimile edition, its translation into the modern Belarusian language and a book with scientific research devoted to the primer in Russian, Belarusian and English. The Primer of 1618 is the first book in the world with this title. It has a small format, and two-thirds of the edition contains texts for reading spiritual content and prayer.
    Two copies of the Primer, published in 1618 by the printing house of the Vilna Orthodox Brotherhood of the Holy Spirit in Yevye in Old Church Slavonic, have survived to this day. One of them is kept in the Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen, the second - in the Middle Temple Library in London. A digital copy was made from it, which formed the basis of the facsimile edition, issued for the 400th anniversary of the world's first primer.
