Island in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart


THIS is an account of travel in Iceland in the summer of 1904 by a German schoolmaster. He made the journey in exceptionally favourable circumstances, for, in addition to four months' leave for the special purpose, and a Reise stipendium, the municipal authorities of Torgau provided a locum tenens at the gymnasium during his absence; while in Iceland he had the services of the guide who accompanied Thoroddsen on seventeen of his eighteen journeys.
