The Most High-Profile Space Book

The online exhibition presents a complete collection of old-print editions by Kazimierz Siemienowicz's "The Great Art of Artillery," which is kept in the library's collections.

For centuries, the unique monograph has been one of the most important and top requested scientific works in Europe, one of the fundamental sources for those who laid a foundation for modern rocket science and brought humanity into space. No wonder the study was translated into many European languages (French, German, English, Polish, etc.).
