Summary/Abstract: This present article continues a theme approached even from 1997 regarding the history of the Batthyany Institute and library from Alba Iulia. Our intention within the limits of the present article is to make a short presentation of the main activities carriend on along time in the astronomic observatory and Batthyany’s library from Alba Iulia, of the manuscript and printed sources regarding the appraise of the library’s collections along time, which could serve as guiding marks for complete ulterior researches. Beside arid statistic data from inventories, work plans, official reports issued at certain dates and from older or more recent archive documents of the library, we tried pointing out the obscure or controversial moments from the almost bicentenary existence of the astronomic observatory and library; we emphasised the information concerning the increase or movement of the funds, information about the topography and the size of different collections at different dates, the appraise of collections through manuscript or printed catalogues or through other specialty works.
