Historia de gentibus septentrionalibus
Romæ 1555 = Description of the northern peoples : Rome 1555
Olaus Magnus, translated by Peter Fisher and Humphrey Higgens, edited by Peter Foote, with annotation derived from the commentary by John Granlund.
Written in English.
"No manuscript drafts of any part of the Historia survive. The sole authority for the text is consequently the 1555 edition, whose printing was personally supervised by Olaus Magnus." This translation, based on "two decent facsimile editions, one published in England in 1971, the other in Denmark in 1972," follows the corrigenda included by Magnus at the end of the original edition, and emends some passages reproduced incorrectly by Magnus from his original written sources. --p. xi, v. 1.
Includes bibliographical references (p. lxxiii-lxxxix)
