They are handwritten texts, all in Czech, the only exceptions being two exercises handwritten in Hebrew characters with English translations of the characters. There are three hardbound books. The other texts are mostly sewn into little booklets. They range in date from 1835 to 1899. The processor has added a biographical sketch of Kun from Koreny, the Journal of the Czech and Slovak American Genealogical Society of Illinois.
