Languages of publication
In the 1950s Kazimiera Maleczynska, as one of the first scholars after WWII , began to study the history of papermaking in Silesia, eventually writing the book Dzieje starego papiernictwa slaskiego [The History of Old Papermaking in Silesia] (Wroclaw 1961). To this day it is the most complete work on the history of papermaking in Silesia from the 15th to the 19th century, containing, among others, a lot of information about the Duszniki paper mill. Inspired by Kazimiera Maleczynska, the Museum of Papermaking in Duszniki began to collect sheets of paper with water marks. Today, the collection has over 5000 items and is the biggest collection of watermarked paper in Poland. In 1968, using Kazimiera Maleczynska’s materials, the Museum organised an exhibition illustrating the history of papermaking in Silesia, an exhibition that survived nearly 30 years with just minor changes.
