Khunovius’ contribution to cartography of Silesia is briefly presented, together with maps of Amsterdam publishers derived from Khunovius models. Discrepancies between his maps as we know them from few extant Bartsch engravings, and maps of the same duchies published in the Low Countries cannot be convincingly explained without invoking to the conjectured earlier Khunovius models. A hypothesis advanced in this paper, assuming existence of such maps (possibly manuscript drawings), is supported by arguments and reasoning based on analysis of the maps’ dedications and on records from early map inventories.
