The Czech writer Julius Zeyer (1841–1901) collected more than 50 artefacts which are deposited in the Náprstek Museum. Some of them belong to the most precious examples of the traditional handicraft of Asia and North Africa. The book contains not only a list of those artefacts but also their description and information on their acquisition in the correspondence between Julius Zeyer and Josefa Náprstková (and Vojta Náprstek) between 1882 and 1900.
