Polnoe sobranie zakonov Rossiiskoi Imperii (PSZ)

Published: 1830-1916

Dates covered: 1649-1913

This mammoth collection includes decrees and laws starting from the Ulozhenie of Tsar Alexis Mikhailovich down to the last decade of the imperial period. The word “law” here may be deceptive: especially for the period covered by Series I (1649-1825), laws could include very specific administrative decisions and regulations as well as all-encompassing documents like the General Regulation of 1720.
