Bél’s great extolment of Hungarian history contributed to the evolution of Hungarian Literary language, the four volumes were printed in Vienna from 1735 to 1742. This is the opus magnum of Mátyás Bél in which he aimed at a comprehensive topographical and historical description of Hungary. The greatest initiative of Mátyás Bél (1684-1749), Lutheran pastor and polymath from Hungary, who also called himself the "Great Ornament of Hungary," was this encyclopedic overview of Hungary’s history and geography. However the county based descriptions are not only, as the title suggests "historical and geographical" (Notitia Hungariae novae historico geographica), but also include educational- and literary history, folkloric approaches as well as thorough researches in the history of the church, genealogical studies, even treating archives and coat of arms descriptions. The first chapter of the huge work describes 9 counties located to the east of the Danube. Bél wrote information about towns, districts and villages within the individual counties. His empirical data gathered on spot is of special importance, they reveal the circumstances of archaeology, ethnography, economy, education and more. Only four volumes had been published, the rest remained in manuscript A fifth volume containing Moson county alone was published after Bél’s death (probably in 1749) and it only has a preceding page title: Matthiae Belii Notitia Hungariae novae geographico historica.
