The programme of publishing classic and humanistic works at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries,
as well as in the first half of the 16th century required the acceptance of new editorial practices,
with regard to both writing and the book format; the style of its composition and decoration. The
unity of the publication content, the publishing address and the typographic shape of prints derived
from entering into a „dialogue” with a reader. The new reading practices were influenced by the
elements of the literary-publishing frame, their choice and location in the book. The article analyses
their development on the basis of the example of prints from The Count Wiktor Baworowski Library
in Lviv. The attention was paid to communication, mutual influences of the authors, editors, translators,
printers, as well as engravers and readers on the example of the edition of the first Polish herbal.
The authors’, printers’ and readers’ reports were presented in the context of the humanistic changes
and the development of the book typography and art.
