Summary/Abstract: Emanuel Ringelblum’s research focused on the history of the Jewish community of Warsaw. His doctoral dissertation about “Jews in Warsaw from the oldest times to 1527” appeared in print in 1932. However, part II of that monograph, dealing with the history of Warsaw’s Jews in the 16th to 18th century remained unfinished and remains in the form of manuscript to this day. It contains plenty of information on the cultural life of Judaic believers in Warsaw during the times of King Stanisław August Poniatowski. The two chapters selected by us, presenting the role of the Polish capital city in trade in old Hebrew prints and the significance of Jewish book collections, are largely based on sources that got destroyed during World War II.
