The article presents a text by Arthur Pierre Stępiński (1829–1900) published on the occasion of the death of Władysław Taczanowski, an eminent zoologist and director of the Warsaw Zoological Cabinet. This text was published in Paris in Bulletin Polonais Littéraire, Scientifique et Artis- tique. It reveals a profound knowledge of the works of Władysław Taczanowski as well as a good under- standing of the situation of Polish science in Warsaw during the Russian occupation. The author rightly emphasises the importance of the patronage of Alek- sander and Konstanty Branicki, that of the networks of scientific collaborators of the Warsaw Cabinet, and the success of his Ornithologie du Pérou. We believe that recalling the existence and content of this text is all the more important as there is at present no biography of Władysław Taczanowski. It is also an opportunity to recall the activities of the Polish scientific institutions in exile.
