No offence was intended and I won't disagree with your history lesson.
But how many of the libraries' collections survived WWII? And how did
the libraries fare during the Communist regime? These are serious
questions and if you know please tell me.
And if you were a librarian in Poland today would you consider it a
good investment to collect a first edition of a minor work in English?
