Bukvar' iuzhnorusskii

Bukvar' iuzhnorusskii (South Russian Primer). A primer compiled by Taras Shevchenko in 1860 and published by him in 1861 in Saint Petersburg for use in Sunday schools for adults and adolescents. Beginning in 1859, the Sunday schools were used by Ukrainian intellectuals to promote Ukrainian as the language of education. Shevchenko's primer followed Hramatka by Panteleimon Kulish (1857) but placed more emphasis on folkloric texts.
