New acquisition

2013

The AS CR Library has purchased the Epitaph of the Provost of the Vyšehrad and St Vitus Chapter Jan of Vartenberk (†1508 ), written by Bohuslav Hasištejnský of Lobkowicz (†1510), for its historical collection. This is a unique historical document from the early 17th century: painting and handwritten text with gilding on paper folio 329 × 407 mm; at the bottom is an inscription referring to another, evidently older person of the same name. a detailed analysis is given in M. Šárovcová’s study in the journal Knihy a dějiny 20, 2013.
