Summary/Abstract: The Author of the present paper introduces a Polish reader to an anonymous manuscript discovered in a Swedish library in Norrköping. Author (originally, the matter was connected with Ludwik de Geer's private book collections from the library in his castle in Finspong). After a graphology analysis had been done by Arild Jägerskogh, it turned out that the described Finspongish manuscript, actually, has its author, the famous „teacher of the nations”, Jan Amos Komenský. It was the manuscript of the seventeenth century which is entitled De Rerum humanarum Emendatione CONSULTATIO CATHOLICA ad Genus Humanum. Ante alios vero Ad Eruditos Europae, consisting of an introduction Europae lumina – in Czech Světlům Evropy – (of 18 pages) and the so called, in Czech, Dedikace Nejmocnější trojici severských království v Evropě (of 2 pages). The manuscript was found by Blanka Karlsson, a Czech researcher of Komenský's works, at the end of the XXth century.
