5.0 out of 5 stars First full-length look at Scandinavia 3 April 2005
By J. Decker - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The five stars are for the content. I can't speak for the quality of this translation. But somehow in the presentation of this book for Amazon, a major error crept in. The original language is Latin, not English. The language of the translation is English, not Latin. It has also been translated into numerous other languages, like Italian and Swedish. I am now reading the Swedish edition and it is absolutely fascinating. You can read it a chapter a day and it never fails to provide information about Scandinavia and a great introduction into what the educated man claimed to know 450+ years ago. This past January was the 450th anniversary of the publication of this work.
