Государственный мемориальный и природный заповедник «Музей-усадьба Л.Н. Толстого «Ясная Поляна»

The Tolstoy family used their home library every day, and the books contained a lot of various bookmarks: manufactured, homemade, improvised bookmarks. They included, for example, calendar pages, silk ribbons, visiting cards, bird’s feathers… Sometimes bookmarks were carefully designed and very delicate, with a successful selection of colours and a positive subject-matter. Here are some of them. 

In the book:

Сhateaubriand, François Auguste René de
Ouvres complètes… Tome dixième : Atala; René. Le dernier Abencerage. Poésies - Paris : Pourrat Frères, Furne, 1835

a bookmark (paper, cardboard, 13.5 x 4.9 cm) between pp. 386-387: rectangular, made from yellow paper thrice folded and glued inside. On top and at the bottom, there is a fringe cut with scissors. The bookmark is decorated with three glued coloured pictures of flowers and nature.
