Henryk Bukowski’s collection

In 2018 we celebrated the 130th anniversary of the donation of over 600 rare books on art and culture history. This collection had been bequeathed to the AAS in 1888 by Henryk Bukowski (1839-1900), rare books dealer from Stockholm. On this occasion the Scientific Library of the PAAS and the PAS in Cracow published digitised version of this bequest’s printed catalogue.
