His lifetime fame was brought to him by the famous library, which was considered one of the largest private book collections in pre-revolutionary Russia. The history of the Yudin library reflected the tragic events of the early twentieth century – not finding buyers in Russia, Yudin sold the library to the United States, where it became the core of the Slavic Department of the Library of Congress.
