A catalogue comprises maps from the map collection of Emeryk Hutten Czapski who accumulated one of the largest private collections of early maps of Poland numbering about 770 in all. The first volume comprises 82 maps from the fifteenth and the sixteenth centuries, the oldest and most valuable. The purpose behind the initiation and publication of the catalogue is not however only to compile a list of the collection of Emeryk Hutten Czapski but to give the reader a chance to become acquainted with important items which do not have a place in the collection. With this aim in mind an Appendix of the most important items outside the collection in the possession of other institutes has been added. Thanks to this, the volume presents a survey of the most important early maps of the Polish Commonwealth. This is in one sense a guide to valuable cartographic items relating to the early Polish Commonwealth with an accurate index and interpretation. The Catalogue and Appendix are provided with illustrations found at the end of the volume which allow one to study the original photographs of the most important maps. (M. Kie czewska-Zaleska).
