Languages of publication
Krzysztof Tomasz Drohojowski is known as a Calvinist grandson, who restored his antecessors tombs in Przemyśl cathedral. The anonymous list of book preserved in the manuscript BOss 229 I is also interesting document of his life (as Karolina Schuster has stated). The inventory consists of 526 elements, books were packed into 5 casks and ordered according to size. Typical descriptions are short and not precise, often fragmentary, they refer to prints and manuscripts. Litteraria were important part of the collection. Drohojowski posessed numerous works of classical literature (but opera by Hezjod et Homer in Latin translation) and many collections of humanistic Latin poetry. Some parts of the collection he inherited, it probably explains for example: three copies of Gofred, a collection of "old poems". Drohojowski was interested in occasional literature and emblematic books, especially catalogues of kings. The most often registered contemporary Polish poet is Samuel Twardowski. Hieronim Morsztyn, the most popular author of the beginning of the XVIIth century, is represented not only by his published romances, but also by "Manuskrypt wierszów Ks. Morsztynowy" (II, 4, 22).
