THE STORY OF SAN MICHELE

By AXEL MUNTHE “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” The Book of the Revelation.

Preface to the electronic edition

This book from 1929 was originally written in English and later translated by the author into Swedish (Boken om San Michele, 1929). Wikipedia has an article about the book in several languages (English, Swedish). A copy of the English first edition was digitized in 2020 by the Gothenburg University library, from where the scanned images and OCR text in July 2020 were copied to Project Runeberg for proofreading. Unfortunately, pages xvi and 1 are missing from the Gothenburg digitization and have instead been copied from one made by the Internet Archive.

This volume was scanned by the Gothenburg University 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.
