All issues disbound and re-stapled, except for special Christmas issue which retains original printed paper covers, with wear to spine - otherwise, all in Very Good condition. 22 X 15 cm. in size. Icelandic Canadian scholar Wilhelm Kristjanson in his book, The Icelandic People of Manitoba (p. 373) states that "Freya is to be rated a literary magazine as well as a woman sufrage journal. Featured were serial stories, biographical sketches of prominent people . . .,; poetry of a high order, including poems by Stephan G. Stephansson, Kiristinn Stefansson, Sig. Jul. Johannesson, Th. Th. Thorsteinsson and Magnus Markusson, literary reviews and a childrens' corner". This is an early publication in the North American Icelandic canon. Hjartar points out in Vesturheimsprent that this journal was published from 1898/99-1909/10). Bookseller Inventory # 35322
