The article orders and completes the state of research concerning the edition and reception of
Wojsko serdecznych afektów by Hieronim Falęcki. His work, hardly known and worked on nowadays,
reflects worldview and aesthetic tendencies typical of the very epoch in which it was created.
One of the distinctive features is among others respecting the principles worked out in oratory.
The author, paying attention to the circumstances of the edition of Wojsko…, selected areas of its
stylistics and graphic layout, as well as citing the so-far unknown evidence of text reading by the
contemporaries, confirms a previous hypothesis by Andrzej Litwornia, who, contrary to earlier arrangements,
but also on the basis of small data, suggested that the book, addressed to a wide circle
of readers could be fairly popular one day.
