Adopted on April 16, 1879, the Tarnovo Constitution remained fundamental law of Bulgaria until 1947. Ambassador Stoytchev also donated commemorative copies of the 1911 Constitution of the Kingdom of Bulgaria, which amended the Tarnovo Constitution to reflect the new name of the country. One of the donated pairs of constitutions will become part of the Law Library’s collection, and the other pair will go to the European Division. Law Librarian of Congress Jane Sánchez and Principal Deputy Librarian of Congress Mark Sweeney accepted the donations on behalf of the Library.
