Absztrakt

The English contacts of the Pápai Páriz-family may have some surprise in store. It is known of the famous seventeenth century Transylvanian doctor and teacher that he translated one of Pierre Du Mouline's books, and it was also he who handed some of Basire's papers over to Chishull. As a scholar of high reputation he sent his son, Francis Jr., to foreign academies, who, during his peregrination was charged with collecting funds in England for the ruined college of Nagyenyed. Pápai Jr. spent some seven years in England collecting money and visiting outstanding men of the day, among them Halley and Newton, as his album manifests. Six of his letters written from London to Alexander Teleki, the curator of the ransacked college, are presented here dealing with the difficulties of their progress and conditions in England, giving details on Europe's political situation as well as lists of plants he sent home from London as unknown in Hungary. These letters are from the years 1715—1717, the first period of Pápai's stay in England. Their importance is represented by the fact that no letters have turned up yet from the later years of his operation there.
