Report by Icelandic imigrant to North America who conducted an official U. S government sponsored trip to Alaska to explore the possibility of setting up in Alaska a settlement of Icelanders. Jón Ólafsson, through the efforts of Willard Fiske, then a Professor of Cornell University, and others, persuaded U.S. President Grant to send this young man of somœ crediblity, plus two companions, to Alaska, to see whether this new possession of the United States might be a desirable homes for Icelandic emigrants. Jón Ólafsson made his enthusiastic report on Alaska, which was printed in Icelandic by the United States government. The scheme was not successful, however. This report is referenced in the bibliography entitled Vesturheimsprent, by Olafur Hjartar, p. 28. Rare, particularly in such a handsome copy. At time of cataloguing: no original copies in Amicus; not in Rare Book Hub databases; only two copies on WorldCat (Sweden, France). N° de ref. de la librería 35827
