Bibliographies of Memoirs/Travel Writing

Maliszewski, Edward. Bibliografja pamietnikow polskich i Polski dotyczacych: (druki i rekopisy).

Warszawa: Towarzystwo Milosnikow Historji, 1928, 449 p. [reprint: Warszawa: Wydawnictwa Artystyczne i Filmowe, 1981].
OIN Call Number: J 428
UIUC Call Number: Polish Reference 016.9438 M29B

The notion of a memoir is treated very broadly here. A certain selection is applied, however: short and non-serious items are omitted, in the case of collections of correspondence only the more important letters are listed. Travel descriptions are included if they are old (up to the beginning of XIX century); the author attempts to include many as many as possible descriptions of foreigners travelling in Poland.

The list of memoirs is kept up until October 1928. The bibliography is divided into two groups:
A.--prints and B.-- manuscripts. Group A (4465 items+ 12 additional items) is further divided: chapter I-introduction (bibliography and list of memoir collections), chapters II-XVIII are divided by historical period (separate chapters are devoted to memoirs from Powstanie Listopadowe 1830 and Powstanie Styczniowe 1863). The material within each chapter has alphabetical arrangemeant.

Included are memoirs published separately (monographs) and those published in periodicals (all monthlies and weeklies available to the author, as well as those printed in some dailies-usually Warsaw ones. The list of periodicals consulted is unfortunately not listed).

Section B is comprised of 966 items arranged alphabetically. Information on the manuscript memoirs were taken from the catalogs of the larger Polish libraries and from de visu research in the following Warsaw libraries: Biblioteka Narodowa, Biblioteka Krasinskich, Biblioteka Przezdzieckich, Biblioteka Zamoyskich, and manuscript divisions of a few private collectors. The author consulted also the collections of the Biblioteka Polska in Paris. The bibliography contains a name index.
