Abstract

Mažuranić-Brlić-Ružić Memorial Library and Collection is a protected monument that includes furniture, art objects, library and archive materials kept in a villa of a Croatian viceking [orig. ban] Dr Viktor Ružić, dating from 1938. Thanks to family ties between several old and reputed Croatian families, their heritage was pooled into a rich historical and cultural collection with substantial material relevant to the history of medicine. This particularly refers to the heritage left by reputed Croatian physicians such as: Ivan Kristofor Daubach Daubachy de Dolje, Dimitrije Demeter, and Andrija Torkvat Brlić jr.

Keywords: history of medicine sources, collections, libraries, Villa Ružić, Rijeka, Croatia
