Zdzisław Żygulski junior - pacem aeternam

sad news -   Zdzisław Żygulski jr, Polish pre-eminent arms and armour historian and prolific writer on the Oriental art, passed away yesterday,  and with his passing a certain era in Old Poland's art history research has ended.

I have been influenced by pan Zdzisław's books and articles (eg on amazon), especially these titles (I have them at home in my 'real' library):
'Stara Bron w Polskich Zbiorach'
'Husaria Polska'
'Ottoman Art in the Service of Empire'
'Broń w dawnej Polsce'
'Sztuka turecka'
'Broń wschodnia. Turcja, Persja, Indie, Japonia'

Pacem aeternam maestro
