The aim of this article is to contribute to the discussion on contemporary writing of the history of Czech linguistics. Specific features of the printed sources from the beginning of 'linguistic research' (or rather, the reflection of language in the 16th and 17th centuries) on Czech are mentioned in part I; the heuristics (sources, archives) is still needed. Part II deals with one example of a grammar of Czech written by Joannes Drachovius SI (published in 1660). Part III emphasizes the research on the primary sources of older 'linguistics', the study of their cultural context, and cooperation with other disciplines.
