In the front matter is reprinted a letter to the author (addressed as Prof. Sinding) from Howard Crosby, Chancelor of the University of the City of New York, in which he states: "It is, therefore, full time that our Universities should have their chairs of Scandinavian literature, as a needful part of the apparatus for a thorough English education, to render more complete the examination of the roots of our speech and race. While this want is felt, we may gladly hail any contribution to American literature which tends to open this interesting field of research. In your volume, my dear sir, I recognize such a pioneer, and rejoice to give welcome." Scarce in this first (thus) edition form. Size: 6.25" x 9.25". Nº de ref. de la librería 001806
