Edition 7th eddition
Granat encyclopedic dictionary was published in 58 volumes with one supplement throughout both the Tsarist and Soviet periods. The word «Granat» refers to the last name of two brothers, Alexander and Ignatiy Granat who commissioned the articles in their Moscow office. First appearing in 1910, the dictionary was finally completed in 1948. The first 33 volumes were published in 1910–17 and the remaining ones from 1922 onwards. Among the notable editors and contributors of this encyclopedia one should mention Vladimir Lenin (splendid article on Karl Marx), biologist Ilya Mechnikov, botanist Kliment Timiryazev, anthropologist Dmitry Anuchin and economist Alexander Konyus. Unlike the Brockhaus and Efron Encyclopedic Dictionary, the Granat Encyclopedia was written primarily by Russian authors.
