The Book Museum hosts an unusual exhibition titled "The Recreated Masterpiece" on March 30. A unique copper plate of the 17th century is shown together with a portrait of the King and Grand Prince Jan III Sabieski recreated from it using the ancient technology of engraving for the first time.
The Champion of the Belarusian Past

The exhibition "The Champion of the Belarusian Past" is timed to coincide with the 170th anniversary of Aliaksej Sapunou (1851–1924), historian, archaeographer, local history expert.

The exhibition is based on unique materials from Sapunou's personal archive and library. These include biographical documents, gymnasium and student notebooks and correspondence with researchers. There are manuscripts, lithographs, plans and facsimiles of documents to the legendary "Vitebsk Antiquity" and other works. The real rarity is the manuscript "The History of Vitsiebsk" which, unfortunately, was never published.  

The Gate to Book Treasures

The exposition is devoted to the development of Belarusian book-printing as part of the world history of the book and main features of Belarusian, European and Eastern book cultures.

The exhibition displays original documents from collections of the National Library of Belarus (replicas of archival documents, bibliographies, manuscripts, and other materials) which show a rich history of foundation and development of the major library of Belarus.
