Norwegian language. Bound in three-quarter black leather and marbled boards. 186 pages, in Gothic script. 1854 title page date; our research indicates this is the year the book was first published. The front pastedown and title page carry much information. A few pencil notations to the title page indicate this volume was probably in a library of some sort at one time, although there are no stamps, stickers, date dues, etc. There is evidence on the pastedown that a bookplate of some sort was removed, and over that is the bold signature of Rasmus B. Anderson, the preeminent 19th century Norse researcher, who taught at the University of Wisconsin for many years. Below that is his donation sticker to the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, partially obscured by the bookplate of Norwegian-American collector Herman Gimmestad. A few leaves have chips from the lower corners, with no loss of text. The body of the book is clean and unmarked, with lightly toned paper but no foxing. Hinges solid, binding square. The leather is rubbed at the high points; the boards have only faint edgewear. An important association copy of a scarce work, one which has been reissued in a more modern form. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
