Caption: Cyrillic alphabet. Third page of the 1710 civil alphabet approved by Tsar Peter I (Peter the Great, 1672-1725). This reform, one of many introduced by Tsar Peter I, was known as the civil script. It helped to standardise the appearance of the Cyrillic letters, with these note later annotated by the Tsar who crossed out the forms that should not be used. This page is from a publication held at the State History Museum, Moscow, Russia.
