POLISH COLLECTIONS (S)

In the 1820s the Signet Library in Edinburgh was given a collection of 143 books on Polish history and literature dating from the 16th to the early 19th century. It was donated by the Polish exiles Count Konstantyn Zamoyski and Count Soba ski who had been allowed to use the Library. The collection was presented to the National Library by the Society of Writers to Her Majesty’s Signet in 1962.
