Mappae Comitatuum Transylvaniae – Book presentation on Researchers' Night at the ELTE University Library and Archives

As a result of the successful cooperation between the ELTE University Library and Archives and the Cluj-Napoca School Foundation Publishing House, we invite you to the presentation of a prestigious map history publication on the 24th of September, 2021 from 16.00 on the occasion of the Researchers' Night. The presentation of the author, Zsombor Bartos-Elekes, will be followed by a round table discussion with the contributors of the volume (moderator: Sándor Tamás).

The book was published as a result of the successful cooperation between the University Library and Archives of the Eötvös Loránd University and the Cluj-Napoca School Foundation Publishing House. The work, published under the title Mappæ Comitatuum Transylvaniae, is in the 91st volume of the outstanding collection of the Jesuit scholar Gábor Hevenesi, preserved in our library. This volume is the first to publish 18 Transylvanian (and Partium) map sheets, which are much more detailed than the previous cartographs, therefore their source value is extremely significant. The accompanying study on the structure, content and background of the maps is available in three languages ​​(Hungarian, Romanian, English), which is completed by a precisely compiled index. The book also provides an insight into the unique collection of our library.

In addition to the volume, by presenting the original manuscript maps, we also provide an insight into a small slice of our unparalleled museum material preserved in our library. The publication can be purchased during the event. The book presentation will be broadcasted live via Facebook. All visitors are welcome!

You can find more information about our events organized within the framework of the Researchers' Night on the official homepage of the event and on our website!
