The book was in English was a collection of fairy tales and folk tales from a variety of regions. Wratislaw himself said “These stories are translated from the language of the Slavonic inhabitants of nearly three-fourths of Bohemia, the ‘Czechs,’ as the Poles write the word, or ‘Chekhs.” A long vacation in 1849 saw him visiting Bohemia and studying Czech language in Prague. Sixty Folk-Tales from exclusively Slavonic Sources” was his first and only collection of Slavic folklore, and was published only two years before his death.
