Originally published in 1774, this book is represented elsewhere as in Danish but is in fact in German, composed in "Frakturskript" or old Germanic font. This first edition, translated from the Danish and published in 1774, deals with the author's travels in Iceland from 1752 - 57. It includes a number of illustrating plate prints, some of which are fold-outs.
A later trip in 1800 resulted in revisions which were translated into English and published in 1804. The English edition is readable in Googlebooks.
