"Polish travels to Southern America in second half of XIX century are so frequent that it is hard to remember and count them all. (...) There are specially topographists working for Argentina's services, who rendered services in mapping many parts of Argentina, to be mentioned. Czesław Jordan Wysocki (b. 13.II.1839, d. 18.V.1883) was probably the most merited person in that area. He took part in Polish January Rise in 1863, then he worked as colonel in topography service and manager of Topography Institute in Buenos Aires. (...). Engineer Zdzisław Celiński (b. 1847, d. 6.I.1929) should be deserved for topography work in Argentina too. He also took part in Polish January Rise in 1863 [and had to escape from Poland]. In some sources it is said, that Celiński was cooperated with engineer Folkierski in Peru for some time.(...)".

It was the first bigger numismatic book, where Stronczyński had described and systematized all know [by himself] Polish middle-aged mints (more than one hundred types dated X-XIII century), showing their birth date, and adding his drawings. (...) Nearly one hundred years later, prof. Stanisław Suchodolski said, that this book is a (real revelation in European scale); chapter How numismatic should behave on excavated middle-aged coins, is actual till today.".
