Hutten-Czapski Emeryk

Emeryk Hutten-Czapski was a numismatist count and collector. He was born in 1828 in Stańków, Belarus, and died in 1896 in Kraków. He studied in St. Petersburg. In 1863 he became the governor of Veliky Novgorod, and later the deputy governor of St. In 1879 he settled in his hometown of Stańków and devoted himself to studies and collecting. His collection of numismatics, books and maps is considered the most valuable in Poland and one of the most valuable in the world. He developed his collection and published it in the work ‘Catalog de la collection des medailles et monnaies polonaises.’ In 1894 he moved to Kraków, where he continued to supplement his collection.

After his death, Emeryk’s family donated these collections to Kraków, which later found their way to the National Museum. 1923 the Hutten-Czapski family established a special institution called the Family Association, which continued to look after the donated collection and enrich it with new gifts.
