The article presents the profile of Eugeniusz Przybyl – one of most notable Torun’s bibliophiles of the 20s, 30s and first decades after the World War Two. By profession E. Przybyl was a painter. In 1920 he moved to Torun and lived there until his death in 1965. He worked for many cultural associations being a cofounder of some of them. As a keen bibliophile he attended to his book collection, regularly adding newly published items. His special interest lay in artistic books, particularly ornate and avant-garde volumes. He also collected second-hand books. In the 20s and 30s he added more than 500 new items to his collection, including one incunabulum and several rare books. Shortly before the WWII Przybyl’s collection consisted of approx. 6,000 volumes. After the war it continued to grow and finally reached about 10,000 items. The article presents early years of Przybyl’s collection while still in his secondary school. The research is based on E. Przybyl’s book inventory held in the University Library of Torun as well as his wife’s accounts.
