The Seto Institute has published the first ever research book in the Seto language, "Raasakõisi Setomaalt,“ compiled by Andreas Kalkun, a researcher at the Estonian Literary Museum.

The book - a translation of Jakob Hurt's notebook from his travels in Setomaa - gives a historical account of Seto life and culture. It is the sixth work to be published in the "Seto Kirävara" series, reported ETV.

Writing during trips to Setomaa in 1886 and 1903, Hurt had not intended to publish his notes, which he used to compose his articles.

The book includes sketches and photos by Hurt and his assistant, as well as commentary.

Featured on Estonia's 10-kroon note and recognized as the "king of Estonian folklore,“ Hurt is credited with collecting and preserving large quantities of folklore and songs.
