The first volume of an ongoing series on the history of the city of Kazan through primary sources focuses on its commercial and industrial activity in the nineteenth century.  A large range of archive materials (from varied state and public institution of the city and region of Kazan), published textual sources (incuding for instance reports of banks activities and entrepreneurs unions), and excerpts from the periodical press (mainly Russian-language regional newspapers, plus the Tercüman from Bahçesaray) have been integrally reproduced.  The ensemble provides an invaluable basis for future studies in economic and social history of the Middle-Volga region during the first industrial revolution.
