This publication is a complete edition of the memoirs of Count Fryderyk Skarbek, edited by Piotr Mysłakowski. Fryderyk Skarbek (1792–1866), a pupil of Mikołaj Chopin and godfather to Fryderyk Chopin, was a prominent figure in nineteenth-century Polish intellectual life. This is the first time his memoirs were published in full edition, supplemented from manuscripts, richly illustrated and supplied with exhaustive notes and biographical sketches. They are undoubtedly of considerable value for research into the first half of the nineteenth century.
