Antique purchases

The Wroclaw University Library in Wroclaw has recently acquired new items as part of the so-called antique purchases.
One of the purchased items is a set of 9 edicts (patents) from 1680-1728 and issued, among others by emperor Leopold I and the bishop of Wroclaw Frederic Landgraf from Hesse. They mainly focus on tax and military matters, trade in snuff and conditions of admission for playing cards.
Another purchased item is the diary of a student of the Wroclaw St. Elizabeth or St. Mary Magdalene Grammar School from the turn of the 17th/18th century. Diary contains entries and names of people from well-known Silesian families who were important for the scientific, artistic and spiritual life of Wroclaw at that time.
The Library also purchased two ex-librises and a series of twelve etching portraits, with a handwritten list of works by Alfred Glatter, a Silesian-Lusatz graphic designer from Bautzen. The graphics come from the 1820s and present a high artistic level.
New acquisitions enriched the Graphic Collections Department's, Manuscripts Department's and the Old Prints Department's collections.
