In Iceland, the age of the Vikings is also called the Saga Age. A unique body of medieval literature, the Sagas rank with the world's great literary treasures.

The covers show wear to its edges , spine and the corners, the text block has light markings and is rough cut. There is also annotations written in pencil on some pages. Still a good tight copy.
