Album of Antiquities

from the Krakow Exhibition

in 1858

by Karol Beyer


In 1858 an exhibition was organized in Krakow, todays Poland, which was probably the biggest display of historical objects in the history of Polish museology.

The catalogue was never printed which is a great shame and certain loss for our knowlegde. Even if the description of the objects were mostly based on family traditions, closer to romantic view of the history than to scientific approach, we could still find more about some of the pieces that are now in museum collections.

Nevertheless, Karol Beyer, Warsaw photographer, came to Krakow and made several pictures which were printed in album showing the highlights of the Krakow exhibition and giving us some idea of how it looked like.
