The exhibition presents 17th century memory books - whimsical travel souvenirs of young aristocrats from the European continent or from distant lands. The volumes contain inscriptions and signatures of various persons the traveler met on his journey. These books are completed with drawings of visited towns, their inhabitants, pictures of memorable events, as well as coats-of-arms of the authors, and their cherished travel memories. The exhibition is on display at Nelahozeves Castle from April 2013 through 31. October 2013. more

The following recipe for almond gingerbread cookies comes from an undated 17th-century manuscript in The Lobkowicz Library. Written in Czech, it contains recipes for pastry, preserves, stewed fruits, syrups and liqueurs. Since the 19th century, the manuscript has traditionally been attributed to Polyxena, Princess Lobkowicz (1566–1642). Though neither the work’s provenance nor a direct link to Polyxena have ever been proven – it is known that she did not write the manuscript, and the book actually contains the writings of several different hands – the volume has always been referred to in literature as “Polyxena’s Cookbook”. more
