Photographer's Note

The University Library of Eötvös Loránd University is one of the oldest and even now recently active public library in Hungary. The genesis of the University's library is traceable to a jesuite college's library which was founded in 1561. The University was founded by Pázmány Péter, the Primate of Hungary in 1635, in Nagyszombat (now Trnava, Slovakia.) The university and the library - with more than 15 000 volumes - moved to Buda in 1777, and in 1784 to Pest.
