About this Item

Norwegian language. Bound in brick cloth with titles and decorations stamped in gilt and rules stamped in black. Copyright 1887; title page dated 1888. No additional printings. 224 pages. Decorated endpapers. With an engraving of the author as a frontispiece, which has 1.5" tear at the gutter. Inscribed and signed by the author on the second blank, with a later gift inscription from the wife of the original recipient to another party; neither are dated, but Langeland died in February, 1888, just weeks after this book was issued, so a very early authorial inscription. The cloth shows mild edgewear, with no frays or tears. Paper toning, as usual for Anderson's productions from this date, but the paper is not brittle or chipped. The front hinge has a 1" split at the head of the gutter; the rear is intact. The binding is pulled at the title page, but there is no mull exposed and no pages even beginning to come loose. With the bookplate of Norwegian-American collector Herman Gimmestad to the front pastedown. Langeland partnered with John Anderson and Iver Lawson to found the newspaper "Skandinaven" in 1866; he moved to found the paper "Amerika" in 1872. The two were quickly merged and went on to become quite influential in Norwegian-American publishing. The latter portion of this title comprises Langeland's autobiography. An uncommon volume, quite scarce with the author's signature. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 124326
