Introduction

Sources for the history for all the Scandinavian countries - Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Sweden - are represented here by different printed primary sources. You will find editions of correspondence, records of governments, landownership and taxation documents. The collection is particularly strong for the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. We subscribe to each country’s main historical journals and have the complete sets going back to the middle of the 19th century. The structure of the collection is very simple one class mark for Scandinavia as a whole ED.0 followed by a class mark for each country: ED. 1 Denmark, Ed. 2 Iceland etc.

Our collection complements the Scandinavian collections in University College London Library.
