Asking for my husband - he recently met a man who when younger had a love for 17th century Polish poetry. He wasn't clear if there was one specific poet, or just poetry from that era. My husband would love to buy him a book of such poems (in Polish) as a gift. But since neither of us knows Polish, Googling isn't helping much. It could be a new or old edition, anthologies are fine. Must be able to ship to the US. Thanks in advance!

What does the Polish word "Haftarz" mean? I see it listed as the occupation of one of my ancestors in the 1854 Warsaw Police census, but I can't find a translation.
Polish Art - My cousin will be in and around Krakow, Poland for a few weeks. He asked me whether I wanted something from Poland. I was going to ask him to get something along the lines of posters as seen here . Does anyone know of stores in Krakow that sell these? Any recommendations on what else I could get?
