The latest publication from the Museum in Chojnice presents a hunting biography of Dr Jan Paweł Łukowicz (1886-1957) - one of the most recognisable figures of Chojnice in the inter-war and post-war period, a respected surgeon who, through his love of hunting, made a special contribution to the development of hunting culture and the promotion of its customs. The book is not intended as a full biography, but as a monographic outline of a kind of portrait of a hunter whose passion turned into a second profession. The author, with great attention to detail, presents the image of the Doctor - extremely committed to the development of Pomeranian hunting, his active social activities in this field, his achievements in the field of cynology and his passion for collecting and bibliophilia - situating him in the circle of prominent figures of Pomerania. The author of the publication is Marcin Synak - the head of the History Department of the Museum in Chojnice, and its reviewer is Dr Marek Kołyszko from the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. The historical value of the book lies in the analysis of hitherto unpublished source material and rich iconography in the form of reproductions of photographs lent from family collections. The publication also contains an extensive set of bibliographical entries, an index of persons and places, and summaries in English and German.
