The album, which contains 175 entries from 1591‒1600, represents a valuable source of information on Waldstein’s process of education and his social contacts, suitably supplemented with a diary where he recorded people whom he was meeting. The essay describes the external form of the album, the languages in which the records are written and the content of the records. It monitors distribution of the entries in time, informs about the process of Waldstein’s education and itinerary of his grand tour as well as personalities of the individual scriptors.
