Preface to the electronic edition

Nansen's Gjennem Kaukasus til Volga was published in Norwegian in 1929 and this English translation in 1931. Meanwhile, the author died in 1930. The book was digitized in December 2008 by Nasjonalbiblioteket, Norway, from where the scanned images and OCR text in May 2019 were copied to Project Runeberg for proofreading.

This volume was scanned by the Norwegian National Library, from where the scanned images were copied to Project Runeberg. We very much appreciate that they have made this possible and want to encourage other digital library projects to follow their example. Read more about Project Runeberg's image sources.
