Summary/Abstract: Adam Antoni Kryński developed interest in bibliography in Szkoła Główna in Warsaw, where he studied under the supervision of an distinguished philologist and bibliographer, Józef Przyborowski. Kryński started to be an active bibliographer with the establishment of “Prace Filologiczne” (1885), the first Polish journal on linguistics. In the same year, Kryński and Karol Appel announced {Przegląd bibliograficzny prac naukowych o jezyku polskim}, a listing of linguistic works by Polish and foreign authors and works on auxiliary sciences, published mainly in the 19th century. Comprehensive, critical and advising content annotations were specific for the listing of Kryński and Appel. Thanks to Kryński’s initiative, the current bibliography of Polish linguistics was being published in 1887–1916. Together with Stanisław Szober Kryński published also bibliography of Polish linguistic works for 1915–1925 (1926). Creation of Polish bibliography of linguistics remains an excellent merit of A.A. Kryński for the history of Polish linguistics and history of Polish bibliography.
