This thesis is a result of the research of the English books in a private library, which was established by the South Bohemian aristocratic family, the House of Schwarzenberg. The aim of this work is to locate the English books in one of the surviving libraries of the primogeniture of the Schwarzenberg family: the castle library in Český Krumlov. Each book is to be located in the catalogue of the library and then physically.

The thesis divided into two major parts provides the historical background of the library and the Schwarzenberg family in the first part, and a list of the books in the English language present in the library, together with the comments on their choice, special features and personal marks on the books in the second part. The information considering the number and subject of the non-fiction books is directly connected with the activities of the family by the time the books were published (such as the building activities of the family in connection with the number of architectonic designs present in the library); and the fiction is discussed from the point of view of the readers through various marks, inscriptions and glosses.

The focus is laid on the 19th century, in which most of the books in the English language present in the Český Krumlov library were printed, and in which the greatest influence from the English speaking countries on the dominion of the Schwarzenberg family can be observed.


Tato práce je výsledkem výzkumu jazykově anglických knih v soukromé knihovně, která byla založena jihočeským knížecím rodem Schwarzenberků. Cílem této práce bylo vyhledat knihy v anglickém jazyce v jedné z dochovaných knihoven Schwarzenberské primogenitury, zámecké knihovně v Českém Krumlově. Každá kniha byla vyhledána na základě zápisu v inventárním katalogu a následně prozkoumána přímo v knihovně.

Práce se dělí do dvou základních částí, z nichž první se věnuje historickým souvislostem a vývoji knihovny, v té druhé jsou pak knihy rozřazeny do kategorií na základě jejich obsahu. Kompletní seznam anglických knih doplněný o katalogové informace je uveden v příloze. Odborná literatura je uvedena do souvislostí s jejím praktickým použitím při modernizaci Schwarzenberského panství a beletrie je zkoumána z pohledu čtenářů na základě různých vlastnických značek, podpisů, vpisků a věnování.

Práce se zabývá především devatenáctým stoletím, kdy byla zámecká knihovna doplněna o největší počet anglických knih a kdy můžeme pozorovat největší vliv anglického prostředí na Schwarzenberské panství.

1 Exlibris is a printed label attached to the inside of the front cover of the book, which bears the coat of arms or the name of its owner (“Bookplates”).

2 Supralibros is an owner’s mark in a form of the coat of arms or the monogram of the owner of the book, which is embossed (and sometimes gilt) on the cover of the book (“Bookplates”).

33 In this work, the names of the aristocratic families and their members are written in their German forms rather than Czech ones.

4 To avoid confusion, it is probably necessary to remind, that the House of Schwarzenberg split into two independent titled lines in 1802. The primogeniture residing in Český Krumlov and later Hluboká Castle started with Josef II of Schwarzenberg, father of Johann Adolf II (frequently mentioned in this text); while his brother Karl Phillip of Schwarzenberg, famous for his military achievements in the Napoleonic Wars, became the first member of the secundogeniture. Karl Phillip is the direct ancestor of the current Minister of Foreign Affairs Karel Schwarzenberg (“Stručné dějiny”).

5 The indirect line continued by Adolf’s adopting his cousin Heinrich as his heir, and Heinrich’s adopting already adult Karel VII of Schwarzenberg, the heir of the secundogeniture. Thus, in the person of Karel Schwarzenberg, the two lines of the family are reunited. Heinrich himself had one child, Elizabeth Regina Pezold, who is still leading the legal fight for Hluboká Castle and other parts of the former property of the Schwarzenberg family (Pelíšek).

6 The library of Maria Ernestine, its cataloguing and development, are the subject of the research of Jitka Radimská, who has written a number of texts about the French collection in the castle library in Český Krumlov. The outcome of her work is her book Knihovna šlechtičny; Francouzské knihy Marie Ernestiny z Eggenbergu na zámku v Českém Krumlově (The Library of a Lady; French Books of Maria Ernestine of Eggenberg in the Český Krumlov Castle).

7 The Mirror Hall is a ball-room with walls covered with Rococo frescoes and with large mirrors incorporated to the decoration. It is situated on the fourth courtyard of the Český Krumlov Castle.

8 As Jitka Radimská states, the opinions considering the number of books in the library today differ. In 1996, 43.249 volumes were counted (Radimská, 18-19).

9 A few of the books falling into these categories are in Czech. Four of them are concerned with the United States of America: Soustátí Americké a jeho Ústava (1872), Máme-liž se stěhovat do Ameriky? (1856), Průvodce katolíka do Ameriky (1815) and Zlatá kniha Československého Chicaga (1926). The rest of them are translations of Shakespeare’s plays (two different publications from 1850s and 1870s called simply Dramatická díla, a translation of Romeo and Juliet from 1847 and Mackbeth from 1786).

10 A catalogue written in 1721 lists 788 books in French, 557 books in Italian and 141 books in Latin (Radimská 20-21) in contrast with this single volume where English appears.

11 “The contemporaries of Eleonore refer to her as ‘the beloved Princess Lori’; this light-haired beauty impressed the court in Vienna with her charm even when she was a grandmother. For over twenty years, her opinion determined the style of fetes, [...] clothing and interior design” (“19. století”). This quote comes from an article published on the official web page of the Hluboká Castle. Unfortunately, both the dating and authorship of this text are unknown. However, its accuracy was approved by the National Heritage Institute of the Czech Republic. In this article, Johann Adolf is described as a pedant, who devoted most of his time to the administration of his lands. Sometimes, the couple argued, when the Princess wanted to cancel some already started work because of some ‘Parisian novelty’ (“19. století”).

12 Walter died at the age of two in Červený Dvůr – a summer residence near Český Krumlov. His funeral was given unusual attention to and a tomb was built for him near Červený Dvůr. The tomb was in neo-Gothic style and it was destroyed in the 1960s. Anna Kubíková wrote an article about Walter’s funeral as a contribution to Obnovená Tradice (35/2006). Sometimes the legitimacy of Walter is doubted (e.g. in “19. století”) and he is said to be a result of Eleonore’s adultery during her stay in England. This discussion, however, is not based on any direct evidence and it is not the subject of this work.

13 Fonthill Abbey was a megalomaniac project of the writer William Beckford in Southern England. Being built of poor material, the excessively tall tower repeatedly collapsed and the whole building did not stand longer than 26 years (Fonthill). The Abbey finally collapsed on 21 December 1825, i.e. during Schwarzenberg’s stay in Britain. He probably saw the Abbey in one of the last months of its existence.

14 More details about John Adolf’s travelling in 1838 can be found in an article by Anna Kubíková published as a contribution to Obnovená Tradice, a journal of the Historical Club Schwarzenberg.
