- Religious texts by Abraham Bzowski (Bzovius) (1567, Proszowice –1637 Rome), one of the most prominent Polish Dominican authors of the Post-Tridentine period. He was active in Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw. In Poland he was "one of the most zealous and earliest systematic promoters of the rosary" (Piotr Stolarski, Friars on the Frontier: Catholic Renewal and the Dominican Order , p. 165). His texts were considered controversial in Poland and Bzowski was criticized by the Franciscans and Jesuits. After getting into a conflict with the Protestants he moved to Rome in 1611, where he spent more than years writing about church history. Bzowski’s works were published among others in Rome, Venice and Cologne. He was also corresponding with Tomasz Zamoyski, Fabian Birkowski and Jerzy Ossoli?ski. One year before his death he retired to a monastery, after his apartment in Vatican has been raided by a heretic, who murdered his assistant. - Estreicher XIII, 495. The only known copy on the market, only few examples known in the libraries worldwide.
