ON A PLANNED AND ABANDONED ANTWERP EDITION OF SZYMON STAROWOLSKI’S WORKS
In the article the author discusses a planned publication by Balthasar I Moretus of a collected edition of several works by Szymon Starowolski. The Museum Plantin-Moretus in Antwerp has some Polish-themed documents testifying to the fact that in 1632 or 1633 the edition, to be entitled Polonia illustrata, was being prepared. Most of the extant copies of Starowolski’s works have handwritten notes by the author himself, among others. Of particular importance is a copy of Scriptorum Polonicorum Hekatontas to which a hand-written document was attached. It contains e.g. an approval formula signed by the censor Fr. Gaspar Estricx.
