Žiga (Sigismundus) Zois, baron of Edelstein (1747–1819), central figure of the Slovenian enlightenment, mentor, poet, critic and translator, one of the finest intellectuals in Slovenia at the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century.

As an intellectual of wide horizons and an influential feudal lord, Zois corresponded with many important personalities of the Europe of his time. The presentation of his correspondence begins with material from the letters of the „Zois circle“, which is the most interesting from a cultural point of view. Most of the 25 letters currently available are from Jernej Kopitar; he wrote them to his patron in the years 1812–1813.

The edition contains the editor's introduction, transcriptions of the German text of the letters (the Kurrent script is transliterated into Latin alphabet), translation into Slovenian and notes.
