Pilot Research 2023-12-20T22:29:44+01:00 Marta Špániová marta.spaniova@uniba.sk Lucia Lichnerová lucia.lichnerova@uniba.sk <p>This study is a piece of pilot research on the aristocratic library of Count Jozef Esterházi in his Čeklís Mansion (the present-day Bernolákovo in Slovakia). The main source for the research comprises the extant catalogue of this library from the year 1749, currently deposited in the National Széchényi Library in Budapest, and its published transcription. The authors present some basic biographical data of Jozef Esterházi and, in this context, discuss the character, development, and orientation of his library from various perspectives. They also inform about Poland-related items in Esterházi’s collection, including a seventeenth-century print related to Poland, which the authors of this study identified among the holdings of the University Library in Bratislava.</p> 2023-12-28T00:00:00+01:00 Prawa autorskie (c) 2024 Z Badań nad Książką i Księgozbiorami Historycznymi https://bookhistory.uw.edu.pl/index.php/zbadannadksiazka/article/view/803 Firmy Gebethner i Wolff związki z Łodzią na przełomie XIX i XX w. 2023-12-20T23:09:12+01:00 Jadwiga Konieczna jadwiga.konieczna@uni.lodz.pl <p>The purpose of the study is to show relations connecting the Gebethner &amp; Wolff editing bookshop with Łódź at the turn of the 19<sup>th</sup> and 20<sup>th</sup> centuries.
