The aim of this article is to present the contents and accents of anonymously published Prague print Alphabetum Boëmicum (1718 in K. F. Rosenmüller’s publishing house). The book is written in Latin and provides the summarization of the traditional Czech orthography of Bohemian and Moravian printers of the 16th–19th century. The author of Alphabetum relies on the authority of Venceslaus Joannes Rosa’s grammar of Czech (1672). His practical handbook contains special orthographical rules (‘licentia scribentium’) for the scriveners in Czech – in the history of Czech language this is to be regarded as a rare testimony of the reflection of the distinction between the orthography for printers and that for scriveners.
