The presented old print is the most complete issue of one of the best known works by Marcin Cromer with the Polish title: O pochodzeniu i czynach Polaków ksiąg trzydzieści [About origins and deeds of Poles in thirty books] (the first Polish translation of the work written in Latin came out in 1611). The issue exhibited in the Museum of Ziemia Biecka in Biecz is supplemented with a well-known map of Poland by Wacław Grodecki (or Grodziecki), first published in about 1562 in Basel.
The work begins with two leaves with dedications. The first one, dating back to 1586, is dedicated to Stephen Bathory. The second one, from 1568, to Sigismund Augustus. Subsequently there is a text, “Franciscus Robortellus Vtinesis Martino Cromer,” a woodcut depicting Stephen Bathory and the previously mentioned map of Poland, “Poloniae Locorumqe Viciniorum Descriptio Auctore Wenceslao Grodeccio Polono” as well as the map, “Magni Ducatus Lituaniae Livoniae et Moscoviae descriptio.” Afterwards the proper contents of Kromer’s chronicle begin. The work is in an excellent state of preservation.
