Weird Tales from Northern Seas: Norwegian Legends by Jonas Lie


Weird tales, wild seas! Originally printed in 1893, this second printing of a classic collection of legends transports the reader to a strange, salty world of maelstroms and maleficent spirits, boat builders, and dream-wreckers. 

Illustrations by Laurence Housman and translated by R. Nisbet Bain. Based on stories he was told as a child, Lie excels in his descriptive power of the thrilling superstitions and legends of his native Northern Norway. He was the literary toast of all Scandinavia.
