Józef Boruwłaski was in a unique position to observe 18th century society. He was polite, amiable, a good conversationalist, and never more than 39 inches tall.

This and his musical tours allowed him to travel extensively throughout Europe, Asia and the Arctic, often in the company of high society, before retiring to Durham to write these most unusual memoirs

Polish-born Józef Boruwlaski was the most famous dwarf of the Enlightenment age. He travelled extensively throughout Europe, appearing and performing at royal courts and salons, before settling in Durham in his later life until his death at the age of 97. His memoirs, published in a bilingual (French and English) version in 1788, show him to have been an intelligent observer of the world he inhabited and explored. The life story of this miniature gentleman is not only interesting in its own right, but also offers a new perspective on the culture of the Enlightenment
