Facsimiles of Historical Books - Call Us at (800) 278-9393 or Order Online at www.PolandByMail.com A facsimile edition is the photo-mechanical reproduction of a unique, practically two-dimensional model; it eliminates as much manual copy work as possible, reflects the inner and outer aspects of the original to the highest degree, incorporates all possible technical means available, guarantees the protection and preservation of the original, and is suitable for both scientific and artistic interests. A facsimile must act as a true surrogate of the original.

What is a facsimile? A facsimile is a reproduction of a unique source. In contrast to a reprint, a facsimile is also always a first edition of a manuscript. It should never reproduce only a portion of the manuscript or its decoration. Completeness is as indispensable as the original format. Accuracy to the original color tones, as much as modern techniques allow, is obvious but the thoughtful publisher and

Gutenberg Bible Facsimile

printer will make an attempt to maintain other aspects as well, such as the fascicle layout of the manuscript and points that can be decisive for a detailed study and can serve as scientific proofs. It must be possible for a scholar to work from the facsimile without using the original, thus saving it from further hardships. The type of printing process is not included among these criteria, as it is possible today to produce a facsimile using a variety of printing techniques and methods.

Every year we try to bring our customers something special, unique, hard to get item, something they can’t easily get here in the United States. In the past we had the Napoleon Polish Lancer full uniform, gold and silver medals, handcrafted silver and 24K gold shot glasses boxed in 1000 year old oak wood. This time we were able to get exclusive distribution of the facsimile of the most valuable book in the world, the first book printed using movable type. The original Gutenberg Bible is owned by the monastery in Pelplin, Poland. A Polish publishing company, specializing in unique book releases, secured the rights for this facsimile crafting a limited edition of only 198 facsimiles. Presently, they are highly sought after, and reach high prices at art auctions.

Work on this facsimile of the Gutenberg Bible lasted two full years. Institutions from Poland, Germany, and Japan were involved in the project. The quality of the reproduction of the original’s detail is so high, it can be looked on as if it were the actual original (for example, if Gutenberg mistakenly inverted a watermark, the book will have it inverted as well). The late Pope John Paul II got the first copy, and it lies within the Vatican. The exceptional importance of the Pelplin facsimile of the Gutenberg Bible lies in a tiny, but extremely valuable, detail. In the left margin on page 46 of the first volume, there is a visible ink spot, sized 25x7mm. This fortunately preserved spot is probably of a font that fell from the typesetter’s hands while he was working. This mark allowed the researchers to reconstruct Gutenberg’s printing font, a detail which is invaluable to historians.

Johann Gutenberg, Gutenberg Bible, Original created in Mainz, 1452-1455, Comes in two volumes, each 12.4” x 16.9” x 4.5”. Specially made, stained and fluff imitation handmade paper, with a watermark as in original. Binding with oak boards covered with maroon leather, brass tumors, corner fittings and clamps attached to leather straps. Facsimile volumes are beautifully packaged in leather suitcase, a replica of the one made for the original in 1939.

The Pelplin Bible is unique because: • Only 5 Bibles have the original binding from Gutenberg’s time (the remainder were again bound in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries) • It is the only one in the world which includes the bookbinder’s name Henry Coster of Lübeck • It has a mistake from the printing process. Pelplin Bible by Gutenberg is one of very few that survived centuries of European wars and disruptions. It’s value, if available for sale, is estimated to be in the range of $100-$110 million.

Frederic Chopin, Concerto in F Minor The manuscript of the concerto in F minor score is a unique document from the life and production of Frederic Chopin. It is distinguished due to the fact that the author himself entered the piano part. This manuscript is the only “semi-autograph” by Chopin of such a size and such musical significance. Chopin composed the piano and orchestra concerto in F minor between October 1829 and February 1830, and it was played for the first time in the National Theatre in Warsaw on March 17 of the same year. The first scores of the Concerto are today considered lost. The facsimile of the semi-autograph prepared on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the birth of F. Chopin in cooperation with the National Frederic Chopin Institute and the “Yushodo” publishing house from Tokyo provides musicians, collectors and bibliophiles with the last authentic link in the history of scores of Concertos by Chopin. Frederic Chopin, Concerto in F minor, France / Germany / Austria, 1832-1846 Size: 9.7” x 13.6” x 0.8” Paper: ribbed, according to the parameters and the watermarked paper by French paper manufacturer Blacons. Binding: hand sewn block, mounted in line with the original paperback Gift packaged into a leather box contains: facsimile Concerto, commentary translated into 6 languages by Professor John Ekier and a CD with a recording of a concert performed by Arthur Rubinstein.

Coat-of-Arms and Heraldry Items A History of Polish Heraldry

(sejm) or by adoption to a noble family. Only with rare exceptions could an elected Polish king grant nobility and a coat of arms to anyone other than a foreigner.

In Poland the noble class was entitled to bear armorial signs. Signs were acquired differently in Poland than in other areas of Europe. Polish arms belong to groups or clans, not related by blood, who share a common armorial shield (herb). Originally Polish kings rewarded people who distinguished themselves in battle, performed a heroic deed or notable achievement, or held a prominent position in government by granting them a noble title and the right to use an armorial shield (often called a coat of arms). In the era of elected kings, people could be admitted to a shield either by election by nobles assembled in the parliament

Each Polish armorial shield has its own individual name, which is different from the family names associated with it. Many different families, with different surnames, may have shared the same armorial shield. A higher proportion of Poles possessed noble status than was the case in Western Europe. Once obtained, an armorial shield was handed down through the generations. Arms and nobility status were inherited by all family members, not just the first son.

Polart Originals is a line of authentic Polish heirlooms made with the highest quality craftsmanship, only available to Polart customers.

Amber Jewelry Amber is found in many parts of the world, but most of it comes from Poland’s Baltic Sea coast. Scientifically proven to be of higher quality than amber found in other places, Poland’s amber is at least 40 million years old, and is made of resin from the trees of that period. In other words, each piece of amber is older than humanity itself! Shades of amber vary from light to dark, so please allow us to make the selection for you.

Shine: St. Mary’s Altar by Wit Stowosz (Bilingual)

By Andrzej Nowakowski In this unique album, Andrzej Nowakowski documents the status of one of the largest works of art of the late Middle Ages in Europe, the Altar in Saint Mary’s Bascillica in Kraków created by Wit Stowosz. Using macro-photography, the general and detailed layout presents the altar in such a manner, which was impossible until now, and which this masterpiece truly deserves. The use of professional lighting allowed the author to reveal the details of Stowosz’s opus magnum, which cannot normally be seen: facial expressions, veins on the legs, hair on the curly beards, small figures placed on the predella or on the architrave of the main panel. This photographic documentation will allow monument researchers to reach places and details in the altar which were not and still cannot be seen without specialised equipment. The compact, yet precise description of each of the 44 pieces of art allows one to not only learn about its parameters, but also about its history. The album is addressed not only to specialists, but to any art lover, who is interested in the unique world of creations of the Master from Nuremburg. A bibliography of Wit Stowosz and St. Mary’s Altar are added to the album, on CD-ROM. Hard Cover, 11.42” x 13.86” x 1.25, 320 pages, Bilingual Polish/English Language Version #BK2786 - $249.95

Ryszard Kapuściński, Poland’s most celebrated foreign correspondent, was born in 1932. After graduating with a degree in history from Warsaw University, he was sent to India, Pakistan, and Afghanistan to report for the Polish news, which began his lifelong fascination with the Third World. During four decades reporting on Asia, Latin America, and Africa, he befriended Che Guevara, Salvador Allende, and Patrice Lumumba. He witnessed twenty-seven coups and revolutions and was sentenced to death four times. His books have been translated into nineteen languages. He died in 2007. Over the years Ryszard Kapuściński was the laureate of many international literary prizes that brought recognition to his creative oeuvre. Most notibly in 2003 he was awarded one of Italy’s most important literary prizes “The Premio Grinzane Cavour” in the international ‘per la lettura’ category (ie for the pleasure the reading of his books gives the reader). In 2006 he was awarded a special category of the “Ilaria Alpi Prize” for the entirety of his career (Premio Ilaria Alpi alla carriera), one of the best-known of Italian journalistic awards.

Another Day of Life By Ryszard Kapuściński In 1975, Angola was tumbling into pandemonium; everyone who could was packing crates, desperate to abandon the beleaguered colony. With his trademark bravado, Ryszard Kapuscinski went the other way, begging his way from Lisbon and comfort to Luanda--once famed as Africa’s Rio de Janeiro--and chaos.

Highlanders, particularly those in the Carpathian Mountains, now divided among three nations Poland, Slovakia, and Ukraine used to work in the forest, and protect themselves with this unusual and ancient axe. In skilled hands it could crack open a helmet like a nutshell or pull a knight off his horse. Now it is used primarily as a walking stick and in Mountaineer (Gorale) men’s folk dances which requires great skill to avoid a few chops at the feet or legs! The ciupaga axe shaped handle is engraved or etched with traditional decorative motifs. It is 34” tall and made of a solid piece of wood with a brass spear like tip on the bottom, which also has multiple uses. This exquisitely hand-carved ciupaga crafted in Poland is for decoration use only. #250100 - $69.95
