When Jonas Andrius Plateris (1626–1696) became Voivode of Livonia in 1695, the Jesuits of Daugpilis dedicated a panegyric to him - The Royal Palace from the Ancient Rafters of the Most Noble Family. The book is decorated with Plateris’ united coat of arms. The book contains the seals of the Wróblewski library in Vilnius. The library was founded in 1912 by lawyer, public and cultural figure of Vilnius, and member of the Lithuanian Scientific Society Tadeusz Stanislav Wróblewski (1858–1925). He gave the inherited collection of 65,000 volumes, 1,000 maps, and 5,000 manuscripts and autographs to the Eustachij and Emily Wróblewski Association in 1912, and in 1925 donated it to the city of Vilnius. In 1941, Lithuanian Academy of Sciences took charge of the collection. The library later became the central library of the Academy. Today, it is called the Lithuanian Academy of Sciences Wróblewski Library.
