    New York: The Writers Guild, 1927. Grey cloth. pp 222, [2]. Rear cover a little bowed, with a one inch abrasion to the fore edge; page edges yellowed; else fine. Dust jacket has nicks, creases, and a short tear (internally repaired) at head of spine; white spine lightly darkened; small chips to outer corners; rubbing to flap folds with 1.5 inches of rear fold worn away; black front panel has creases to upper inner corner and mild rubbing; VG otherwise and still attractive. With very nice Art Deco illustrated endpapers and front panel of the jacket by Léon Laugier (1879-1962). An historical novel set in Sicily at the end of the 13th century, involving "Soldiers, Sicilian mafiosi, townspeople, shepherds, fishermen, dancers, men at arms, nuns, courtiers, monks, gods, nymphs, tritons, etc.", as well as Roggero Mastrangelo, "last of the Normans" and Charles of Anjou. Willis Vernon Cole was a well-to-do American poet and novelist who lived in Greenwich Village and France. Claiming his failing eyesight was cured by Christian Science, he became an ardent adherent and set up an offfice for healing, where he charged small fees. This landed him in court, charged with practicing medicine without a license. He endured five years of trials and eventually won his case, setting the precedent that allows religious healing to be legal in the United States. This novel concerns the War of the Sicilian Vespers, a rebellion which overturned French rule. Some criminous interest (Mafia). Not in Hubin but probably should be. Not much is known about the artist Laugier, but his work is very appealing.

    Copenhagen: Jens Hostrup Schultz, 1826.

Rather nasty gouge from the top of the front board, with concomitant loss to the half-title (blank area), and including two letters of "Krakas" on the title page; small chip to head of spine; otherwise clean, bright and fresh; unopened at the top edges, hence unread. Old Norse text with Icelandic, Danish, Latin and French translations, Danish notes. "Ragnar Lodbrok ...was a historically dubious Norse Viking hero and legendary king of Denmark and Sweden, known from Viking Age Old Norse poetry and sagas. According to that traditional literature, Ragnar distinguished himself by many raids against Francia and Anglo-Saxon England during the 9th century. There is no evidence that he existed under this name and outside of the mythology associated with him. According to the Tale of Ragnar Lodbrok, Ragnar was the son of the Swedish king Sigurd Ring." - Wikipedia. "Krákumál or the Lay of Kraka is a skaldic poem, consisting of a monologue in which Ragnar Lodbrok is dying in Ælla's snake pit and looks back at a life full of heroic deeds. It was composed in the 12th century, almost certainly in the Scottish islands. It is composed in a kind of háttlausa in 29 stanzas, most of them with ten lines. In moving and forceful language, the poem deals with the joys of the life of a warrior, the hope that his death will be followed by a gory revenge, and the knowledge that he will soon know the pleasures of Valhalla. The poem has been translated into several languages and it has contributed to the modern image of a Viking warrior." - Wikipedia. This is the first complete edition of Krákumál, with the original Icelandic text arranged with a parallel translation into Danish, and a translation into French. Rafn, a distinguished antiquarian, was among the first to insist that Viking travels to America were fact and not myth.
