Translated from the Swedish by the Rev. William Lewery Blackley. First American Edition. Edited by Bayard Taylor. New York: Leypoldt & Holt, 1867.

Small spot on front cover, and with spine lightly faded and worn at extremities, but otherwise a very good copy. name in ink of C. W. Peck dated 1868 on title page. Esaias Tegner (1782-1846) was a Swedish teacher, bishop, and his country's most popular poet of the period. Frithiof's Saga, a cycle based on an Old Icelandic saga, is his most famous work. The firm of Leypoldt and Holt was established in 1866, a year after the young Holt first came to work for Leypoldt. Holt had recently come into an inheritance, much of which he lost speculating in Pennsylvania oil stock. He had $6000 to invest in the new publishing firm and soon learned that Leypoldt's assets in the firm were a debit of $11,000. At the time they were established they were the first publishers in the country to be publishers exclusively, operating neither a bookstore nor a printing plant. Holt would go on to become one of the most innovative and creative publishers in American history. Bookseller Inventory # 5249
