About this Item

Bibliographers (e.g., Hjartar, Gegnir) divide the records for this Icelandic-Canadian/American periodical into two iterations, one published in 1891-92, the other, 1893-1896. We offer an incomplete set of 15 issues of the second iteration of this periodical here, that is, 1893-1896, comprising Volume II, issues 2, 7, 8,10 and Volume IV, issues 1-11 inclusive. All issues in Very Good or better condition; the 4 issues from volume II are in original unstapled format; the eleven issues from Volume IV have been disbound from a hardcover volume, and re-stapled. Some issues are combined. About 16 pages per issue. 25 cm. PUBLISHER: Winnipeg: Heimskringla Printing & Publishing Co., 1893-1896. Publ. dates/Seq. 1.-4. Year/árg. Gen. note Allt sem út kom. SUBJECTS/CONTENT: Oldin (The Century) is an Icelandic language periodical designed "to educate and inform", edited by Icelandic man of letters and adventurer Jón Ólafsson and later by Eggert Johannsson (the son of pioneers in New Iceland). One of the most important Icelandic periodicals published in Canada - many of Stephan G. Stephensen's poems appeared here for the first time. It includes original poetry by leading Icelandic North American poets Stephan G. Stephansson, Undina, Kristinn Stefansson, Sigurdur Joh. Johannesson, and Sigurbjorn Johannsson; as well as original articles and essays by Icelandic and non Icelandic writers; and Icelandic folklore not recorded elsewhere. The very top Icelandic-Canadian and American writers contributed to this periodical - e.g., Stephan G. Stephansson has 10 poems in the June, 1985 issue (Vol. III, No. 6) and in the March/April issue of 1896 (Vol. !V, No. 3-4) he has 12 poems - when his poems appear in the pages of this journal, they are usually the lead items in that particular issue. Subjects : Journal/Tímarit; Vestur Íslendingar. Rare, early and important Icelandic-Canadin/American literary journal. Bookseller Inventory # 35356
