The article discusses occasional poems in which Andrzej Trzecieski praised the 16th century works
and their authors. The poems, printed in „recommended” books fulfilled, above all, advertising functions.
Among others, it was emphasized that Trzecieski encouraged equally enthusiastically to read works by
the authors enjoying authority in the 16th century and the debuting ones, wrote praises of Latin works
and written in the national language. He appreciated advantages of works that are fundamental from
a today’s perspective, but also indicated the „advantages” of literary ephemerides. Worth attention, from
a religious point of view, were Trzeciewski’s praising rhymes, both in books submitted to print by reformation
advocates and the Catholic church.
