Summary/Abstract: This study concerns the first edition of the „historical song”, a peculiar poem by Wincenty Ignacy Marewicz entitled Nefelonikones, urywki z ociemicielstwa. Zbiór osobliwych obrazów z dzieł dawnego świata…, which was published in Paris in 1836, fourteen years after the author’s death. A part of this article concerns the persons who could have participated in preparing this edition. The print has a rich editorial framework that includes a Latin epigraph and a prose introduction, a verse address from the editor to the reader, an introduction by the author, and commentaries from the editor. The editor’s annotations vary in character. They include strictly informational or informational-supplemental notes and annotations regarding the writing technique. The most interesting are the commentaries from the second category, of amplifying character, as they often indirectly characterize the editor himself. The comments added to the content notes, the way the annotation is formulated, and its stylistics reveal the commentator’s attitude toward the concepts evoked in Marewicz’s work, the situations and events he was describing and evaluating.
