A Linguistic History of Russia to the End of the Eighteenth Century by A. Johan Gabriel Sparwenfeld and the Lexicon Slavonicum. His Contribution to 17th Century Slavonic Lexicography by U. Birgegård, I. Birgegård. A Linguistic History of Russia to the End of the Eighteenth Century by A. Vlasto (pp. 202-211). Birgegård (pp. 234-235).

This is the first complete and balanced historical grammar of Russian to appear in many years. Clear and readable, with none of the technicalities of theoretical linguistics, it is destined to become the standard introduction in English to Slavonic philology. Focusing on language as it was actually used, the book is accessible to those students of Russian whose main interest is in literature rather than philology. Vlasto traces the merging of Russian with Old Church Slavonic to the evolution of classical modern Russian--the standard literary language--at the end of the 18th century.

Nothing personal
A. P. Vlasto's A LINGUISTIC HISTORY OF RUSSIA TO THE END OF EIGHTEENTH CENTURY is one of the few historical grammars of Russian available in English. Assuming some interest in historical linguistics, it rigorously tracks the phonology, morphology, and lexicon from Proto-East-Slavic on. Vlasto's opening chapter, "Preliminaries" sketches the historical phonology of Common Slavonic and the changes that formed each of the three (or four) modern Slavonic groups, but some knowledge of Old Church Slavonic is really essential to get much out of the book. The perpetual influence of Church Slavonic on Russian, first in the evangelization of Kyiv Rus' by Byzantium through Bulgaria and later by the "Second South Slav Influence" a couple of centuries later, is of paramount concern for Vlasto.

The only other easily available such work in English is W. K. Matthews' RUSSIAN HISTORICAL GRAMMAR, and the two complement each other quite well. Matthews' goes all the way to the mid-20th century and is written in a slightly more layman-friendly tone. Vlasto's book, however, has a much more complete explanation of early Russian phonology, such as the range of permitted consonant clusters after the fall of the yers. And while the history of the standard Russian language is the main object of concern in both book, Vlasto includes a chapter on dialects and makes many interesting references to Ukrainian and Belarussian speech. Finally, Matthews includes as an appendix a reader of various stages of Russian, while Vlasto's gives more bibliographic references to interesting reading material.

If you are interested in the historical grammar of Russian, I'd highly recommend getting the works of both Vlasto and Matthews. What a pity that Vlasto's, which would be highly useful for students of archaic Russian, has passed so quickly out of print and used copies don't seem to abound.
