He wrote three major works: a history of Slavic legislation (1832–38, 4 vols.; 2nd ed. 1856–65, 6 vols.), a history of Polish literature since the 16th century (1851–62, 3 vols.) and a history of the peasants of Poland (1874); the latter was the first monograph to be written on the Polish peasantry. He followed the historical Romanticism of Joachim Lelewel, and had a Pan-Slavic outlook.
