Summary/Abstract: Through this study there was tried to render valuable a series of documentary information, extracted from the account book of the printing house from Blaj; it is kept in Alba Iulia and corresponds to the years 1807-1818; especially there was fructified the information referring to the editions and book stacks existent in the storage rooms of the printing house, over the course of mentioned years. There was also tried to corroborate documentary information by a series of bibliographical information, for better limitation of the editorial activity and the existing books of the printing house. The general view is edifying, from the stated point of view and the activity of the printing house can be better interpreted, on its basis, during the course of mentioned years, inclusively from the point of view of some confusions concerning old Romanian book bibliography. Also there could be evidenced several contributions to the Old Romanian Book Bibliography (17 editions), titles and editions of printings that didn’t enter any bibliography so far (because such copies of old book haven’t been identified till now, either because they are held wihtin certain collections not yet investigated, or because they are fragmentary and their indentification is very difficult, or, pure and simple, they got lost by excessive wearing and do not exist anymore copies of some of the remembered editions).
