Fine condition, gift quality, in illustrated pictorial hardcover. 838 pages. 28 cm.

Also a history of 'New Iceland' in North America. The author enriches the family histories of settlers by providing accounts of relatives of the settlers in Iceland plus the places of origin in Iceland of these settlers. The late Professor Haraldur Bessasonm then Head of Icelanndic Studies at the University of Alberta, wrote in the introduction to the book that the author established 'ties between thousands of Icelandic North-Americans and their native Iceland', and has created 'a more meticulous piece of research than any previously undertaken in the fields of Icelandic ethnic history'. Rich in genealogical information. Many photos. Increasingly scarce and sought after. N° de ref. de la librería

Descripción Saga, Canada, 1985. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Good. First Edition. B002CZUEEI 838 pages. "Even though the geographic limitations of this work are prescribed by the boundaries of a specific Icelandic settlement, its general scope and extensive background research defy this narrow categorization. The author not only traces the history of the settlement itself, from its beginnings to recent times, he includes a great deal of material of potential interest to those who may have only tenuous links with the Icelandic cultural heritage, at the same time establishing ties between thousands of Icelandic-North Americans and their native Iceland. The author's disciplined approach has made the writing of this book an arduous task, but at the same time his stringent demands upon himself have enhanced the scholarly merit of his work immeasurably. Virtually unaided, the author has now completed and seen through to publication a more meticulous piece of research than any previously undertaking in the field of Icelandic ethnic history." - Haraldur Bessason, Professor and Head , Department of Icelandic Language and Literature, University of Manitoba. As is common with this title, the binding of this copy is over-matched by the considerable weight of the book, resulting in the binding being relatively loose/tender but still intact. Gift greetings atop front free endpaper. Average wear. A worthy copy of this treasured reference. Nº de ref. de la librería 63AG1595
