Looking for 17th Century Polish poetry books

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 this awesome 105-year-old Armenian-language Austro-Hungarian postcard say?

I just bought a postcard written in what looks like Armenian sent from what is now Lviv to what is now Chernivtsi (in what is now Ukraine), sometime between 1905 and (I'm guessing from the stamp) the end of the First World War/Austrian rule of Galicia. What does it say? [more inside]

Where can I find an original Polish movie poster for "Dawn of the Dead" (1978)?

I'll be going to a convention next month with a number of "Dawn of the Dead" alumni in attendance and I'd like to have something unique for them to sign.

Things people in 1854 Warsaw did for a living

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.

Posters in Krakow

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?
