THROUGH SIBERIA THE LAND OF THE FUTURE

Preface to the electronic edition

Nansen set out on this journey in August 1913 and his book Gjennem Sibirien was published in Norwegian in the autumn of 1914, after the outbreak of The Great War. This English translation was published the same year. The book was digitized in June 2010 by Nasjonalbiblioteket, Norway, from where the scanned images and OCR text were copied to Project Runeberg in May 2019.

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.
