Preface to the electronic edition

Oscar I (1799-1859), king of Sweden and Norway from 1844 (see Wikipedia), wrote a little book Om straff och straffanstalter in Swedish in 1840 while still crown prince. Two years later, it was translated to English by his own English teacher Alfred May. It was also translated to several other European languages. A Norwegian translation by Henrik Wergeland, Om Straf og Straffeanstalter (1840) has been digitized by the Norwegian national library. That text is also available in Wergeland's collected works.

Both page images and the raw OCR text have been copied from Google. This book was digitized on April 24, 2006, from the library of Oxford University. OCR quality was very good, requiring only very little proofreading and some markup.

Some pages were missing in the beginning of the book. Copies of these pages were ordered from the Swedish national archives, scanned and put in place here on October 23, 2009. At the end of the book, the illustration plates have not been folded out for digitization. Such omissions are not uncommon in Google's digitization of small format books.

This volume was scanned by Google Book Search, 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.
