I am still not sure we do - as there is no hard evidence for
his existence (nor his library existence).

Most of such information is given in the editor's footnotes,
where he quotes actual records of purchase and other resources
identifying both houses and people listed. In the case of
Mnisovsky was still recorded under his name ("of the late R.M.").

There is another census of 1651 called _Soupis poddanych podle viry_
(List of subjects according to faith) which covers all the people,
not only tax payers. They started publishing it in the 1990's
but I have not seen it yet (not in the libraries here).

Best regards,
