Books

Fragments of Pavle Beljanski abundant library testify to the breadth of his interests and mastery of a number of foreign languages. He had donated part of his library on history of art to the Faculty of Philosophy in Belgrade in 1964, and books on various other areas of interest were given to the Memorial Collection by collector’s heirs in 1966. Library contains 329 valuable titles on philosophy, history, literature (novels, stories, itineraries...), history of law and diplomacy in Latin, German, French, Italian, English, and Serbian language, encompassing the period between the middle of the 18th century to the middle of the 20th century. Acquired books were later bound in leather book covers (so-called French covers) by Beljanski, giving the library a more uniform and luxurious feel. Entire book fund was exhibited in the Pavle Beljanski Memorial Hall and completely restored in 2003, during the renovation of this Memorial Hall and restoration of all its exhibits.
