The Norse discovery of America : a compilation in extensó of all the sagas, manuscripts, and inscriptive memorials relating to the finding and settlement of the New world in the eleventh century. by Arthur Middleton Reeves( Book )
33 editions published between 1905 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 526 libraries worldwide
"This work brings together for the first time the interpretation of the best authorities respecting the evidences, historical, archaeologic, inscriptive, and deductive, of Norse discovery, occupation, and colonization of America five centuries before the time of Columbus. The subject, though it has engaged in a general way the attention of historians for a long time, has only within recent years been brought into great prominence by a serious study of the Saga writers of Iceland and Scandinavia. The beginning of this interest dates from 1837 in which year was published, by the Royal Danish Society of Northern Antiquaries, a large quarto volume of old Icelandic documents, in which the proofs were set forth that the discovery credited to Columbus was anticipated by sea-roving Norsemen five hundred years earlier. This great work was edited by Prof. C.C. Rafn, founder of the Royal Danish Society, and was the result of painstaking labor and expensive research by that very distinguished antiquarian."--Back cover

In the prologue Sturluson describes the Norse gods as historical descendents of the Trojans who travelled north after the fall of Troy to settle the lands of Northern Europe. The second book, Gylfaginning, old Icelandic for “the tricking of Gylfi”, describes the creation and destruction of the world of the Nordic gods. The third book, Skáldskaparmál, old Icelandic for “the language of poetry”, contains of a dialogue between Ægir, a sea god, and Bragi, a skaldic god, on the nature of poetry. The fourth book, Háttatal, Old Icelandic for “list of verse-forms”, is a section of poetry composed and discussed by Snorri Sturluson. A classic of Norse mythology, “The Prose Edda” is one of the most important of all Icelandic texts. This edition is translated with introduction, notes, and vocabulary by Rasmus B. Anderson
Among cannibals; an account of four years' travels in Australia and of camp life with the aborigines of Queensland by Carl Lumholtz( Book )
8 editions published between 1889 and 1908 in English and held by 172 libraries worldwide
In 1880 the Norwegian ethnologist, zoologist and explorer Carl Lumholtz embarked on an expedition to Australia, with the purpose of observing the life and customs of the Australian Aborigines. This book focuses on his experiences while living for a year with a community in Queensland that had never previously come into contact with white people. 'Not only are many of the Australian Aborigines cannibals', says Lumholtz, 'but most of the tribes have not yet emerged from the Stone Age in the history of their development'. He goes on brilliantly to document a complex and fascinating society. Containing detailed maps to illustrate the explorer's travels and many images, the book also includes informative appendices outlining Australian history, geology, flora and fauna. First published in 1889, Lumholtz's classic account of the events and practices he witnessed retains the power to shock, educate and entertain the modern reader
