In two volumes; 383(1)pp. and 415(1)pp., Translated by Arthur G. Chater, illustrated, Each volume with tipped in color frontispieces with creasing to lower corners of both frontispieces. The author found that much that had previously been written about the Northern world was not to be depended upon; frequently, one author had copied another, and that errors and opinions which had once gained admission remained embedded in the literary tradition. He built his foundation on his extensive studies. Illustrated throughout with maps and figures. Bound in blue pictorial gilt cloth lettered and ruled in black, spine lettering gilt, covers soiled and with some wear to spine ends. A very good set.
