Giving Away a Borrowed Book

Cicero–Vegetius-Frontinus: De re militari.

The famous Hungarian writer and literary scholar,

György Aranka (born on 15th September 1737),

created in Târgu-Mureș during the last decades of the 18th century

  the Erdélyi Nyelvmívelő Társaság (Transylvanian Literary Society)

and the Transylvanian Society for Manuscript Publishing

(Erdélyi Kéziratkiadó Társaság).

This learned man who was respected all over Transylvania

also had good connections with the library-founding Chancellor Teleki,

they even collaborated in getting hold of or copying

historic manuscripts.

The Teleki Library was presented by Aranka

with a masterfully executed 15th century manuscript,

with the following dedication on the first page:

‘To become part of his Ex(cellency) Hon(ourable)

C(ount) Samuel Teleki’s Transylvanian book collection,

Sincerely György Aranka, mp (manu propria)’.

This volume that contains the military writings

of three ancient authors – Cicero, Vegetius, Frontinus –

is one of the Teleki Library’s five codices.

However, this manuscript that Aranka has given to the Library

as a present was not his property: during the 27th assembly

of the Erdélyi Nyelvmívelő Társaság held in 1797, Aranka gives account

on how he visited the Monastery of Șumuleu Ciuc

and borrowed the manuscript from the monastery's collection

with the intention to study and to copy it ...
