Description This article deals with orthography of the third edition of Dream book by Václav Hájek z Libočan, printed in 1614 in the printing office of Jiří Handl in Prague. The article is focused on two issues: 1. the repertory of graphemes (graphs) and their distribution, including punctuation, 2. typefaces (characters of printing) that were used. The analysis shows that the orthographic and typographic features of this print are in most cases in accordance with trends in development of the Czech orthography of printed books from the second half of 16th Century (this orthographic system is traditionally referred to as “Brethren orthography“ and recently as “printers orthography”).
