Summary/Abstract: In the library collections we identified eight old Romanian books, two of them appeared in the XVIII-th century, the others seeing the printing light in the next century, being imprinted in the following typography centres: Târgovişte, Bucureşti, Sibiu (3), Râmnic, Buda. Noticeable is an unedited edition of the publication Book useful to the soul (in the absence of the front page being unable to specify the typographic centre and the year of publication), to these being added the four editions known to the bibliographic sources (Bucureşti, 1799; Bucureşti, 1800; Iaşi, 1819; Bucureşti, 1827). The books got into the institution’s patrimony after some donations, reminding in the context the reputed ethnographer Gheorghe Pavelescu, who donated two printed works.
