Shakhmatov A. A. Review of Russian chronicles 14 – 16 centuries. – M.: 1938 – 372 p.

Shakhmatov interested in the chronicles of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania to the extent that they affected the Moscow chronicles. He owns the right observations on the composition of sources and their boundaries in the EMF, in particular, references to SimL and S1LSI. Within the set of thematic restrictions, it was significant progress. But these observations was inserted in his general scheme of development of the Moscow chronicles, which contains a lot of groundless and rejected as a whole.
