I am the Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts at the Newberry Library (Chicago), and I am considering the purchase of a copy of Pietro Bertelli's 1592 Diversarum Nationum Habitus costume book with the book plate of the Waldesovo (or Waldes) Museum in Prague. I had read that the library from that museum was transferred to the Museum of Applied Arts, but I have not been able to search the online catalog to check whether this copy of the book is (or was) considered part of that collection.
Ideally, I would like to know if the book has been deaccessioned properly from either the Waldesovo or the Museum of Applied Arts, and when. If this is not possible, I would very much appreciate any other suggestions of ways to search for the history of the Waldesovo.
