Long Description:
This stamp commemorates 400th anniversary of the National and University Library in Zagreb, Croatia. The roots of the National and University Library in Zagreb could be found in the library of the Jesuit college that was founded in 1607. It was the library of the first public grammar school in Zagreb which soon afterwards became the library of the first higher education institution in Croatia. After Emperor Leopold I issued his Diploma in 1669, the school was further established as the Jesuit Academy in the Royal Free City of Zagreb. By the dissolution of the Jesuit order in 1773, Zagreb Royal Academy was established as a higher education institution for law, philosophy and theology, and in 1778 the National and University Library became the library of the Royal Academy. The University of Zagreb was established in the year 1874, and the Library became, both by its tasks and its name, the University Library and it remained so to the present time.
