NEW EDITION OF NLM “ĐURĐE CRNOJEVIĆ”

The National Library of Montenegro “Đurđe Crnojević” has published a new edition – “Treasures of the National Library” from the Old and Rare Book Collection.

“The National Library of Montenegro “Đurđe Crnojević” holds a rich and diversified collection of old and rare books, which constitutes part of the Montenegrin cultural heritage of special importance. The long history of the collection is associated with the reign of Petar I Petrović Njegoš, who had his secular books transferred from the Monastery to his residence in Biljarda in 1838. Many European capitals of that time considered Njegoš’s library as the state library, and the inscriptions found in some of the books testify to that fact”, said the author Ljubica Vučinić in a foreword to the book.
