Henryk Markiewicz, one of the greatest Polish humanists of the 20th and 21st centuries, died on 31 October 2013 in Kraków. His huge legacy includes writings dealing with bibliological themes, concerning the history of literature, literary life, perception of literary works, and their formal, in-cluding material, aspect, i.e. books themselves. In addition, there are several theoretical and practical articles dealing with editing and relating to various editorial projects encompassing fiction, criticism and historiography, as well as theory of literature. Markiewicz is also the author of humorous works published in the form of occasional bibliophilic prints. Henryk Markiewicz amassed a huge book collection, which he used in his work but which was also a source of constant pleasure for him. He compiled it passionately, systematically and painstak-ingly. As a result, he built up a humanistic collection of forty-five thousand books, which, along-side an almost complete set of works dealing with Polish studies, contained foreign publications as well as selected publications devoted to related disciplines. This collection as well as the scholar’s substantial archive was bought already during his lifetime by the Pomeranian Library in Szczecin.
