ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's insights on the letters in the collection of Austrian National Library which is a source for the history of the University of Tartu in Tartu, Estonia. The author highlights the letters by Karl Simon Morgenstern, in which he offered Karl August Böttiger a contribution regarding the mummy sarcophagus. He states that Morgenstern was visible to expand the academic museum of the university by way of purchasing plaster casts of main works of the ancient world and he refers to the cast which Catherine II of Russia had provided for the Academy of Arts in Saint Petersburg. He adds that from a further letter by Morgenstern, ity can be concluded that he made an offer for Veduta di Roma disegnate ed incise da Giam Battista Piranesi for the amount of 40 Taler.
