Abstract. The readings on the history of Peter’s time seem to be quite stable. These included works written in Petrine time, some of which were published in the first quarter of the 18th century, the chronological tables of Peter the Great’s reign, often with a poetic preface, as well as biographical works by P.N. Krekshin and A. Katiforo, created in Elizabethan time and distributed as copies.

The first biographical works about the tsar-reformer were often supplemented by handwritten copies of printed decrees, communiques, letters and other documents. In addition, handwritten miscellanies, consisting exclusively of letters and decrees of Peter the Great, were distributed.

In the late 18th – early 19th century handwritten miscellanies about Peter the Great became a subject of interest among collectors and academics. Therefore, at present, these manuscripts can be found in various collections in archives and libraries. The collection’s being part of the family fund gives the researcher an opportunity to talk more confidently about owner and the purposes of compilation. The collections lack necessary historical convoy, and it is very difficult to trace the origin of the manuscript.

Codicological research provides an opportunity to clarify the origin, the sociocultural milieu and the further archival being of the miscellanies about Peter the Great.

Key words: handwritten miscellanies, Peter the Great, Petrine era, 18th century, codicology, owner’s inscriptions.
