A wealthy and learned Polander, of the time of Casimir IV. Living a retired and studious life, he escaped the notoriety of history, and though a profound writer upon scientific and abstruse subjects, his works were never published. His birth, and the events of his life are, therefore, buried in obscurity; but no one can look upon his grandly intellectial countenance, and fail to feel that he was no ordinary man. [P. 6; the word "feel" appears in italics in the catalogue.]
