Fragments of the book collection of the Carmelite Monastery in Sąsiadowice in the Ossoliński National Institute
Languages of publication
In the second half of the 19th century the Carmelite Monastery in Sąsiadowice had a library encompassing about a thousand volumes, amassed since the founding of the monastery, i.e. 1603. In 1915 a small but very valuable part of the collection (about 70 books) found its way into the library of the Ossoliński National Institute. This happened thanks to Professor Eugeniusz Szmurło, who as a delegate of the Academy of Sciences in Petersburg was charged with securing books collections from aristocratic and monastic libraries in early 1915 in Eastern Galicia, after the front had moved on. The aim of the article is to present the fate of the items from the library of the Sąsiadowice monastery which found their way into the Ossoliński National Institute in Lviv, as well as those which are currently kept in the library of the Ossoliński National Institute in Wrocław. The attached annex contains a catalogue with descriptions of 71 books (2 incunabula, 67 printed books from the 16th century and 2 printed books from the 17th century).
