Dampstain to upper right from around page 500 on, a few scattered dampstains, modest foxing - generally a clean copy. (96), 854, (2) pp. Brunet III 1302.
Magnus's history of Sweden and the North was enormously successful and popular and was translated early on into Italian, German, English and Dutch. It describes much folklore and customs not recorded elsewhere - including the first description of making the questionable Northern delicacy lutefisk. Size: Folio. Quantity Available: 1.
