Preface to the Electronic Edition

Project Runeberg is indebted to Microsoft and the Open Content Alliance for the scanning of this book, which apparently belongs to the University of Toronto Library. The scanned images and OCR text were found at Microsoft's Live Search Books (bookid=8fddbd817fe8005a) and downloaded in PDF format from the Internet Archive. From there, the images and raw OCR text were extracted and used for Project Runeberg's web presentation.

This book is relevant to Project Runeberg's focus on Nordic literature because of its presentation of the Scandinavian playwrights Ibsen and Strindberg. The book is in the public domain because it was published in the United States before 1920.

Russian-born writer and anarchist activist Emma Goldman (1869-1940) lived in the United States from age 17. This book was published, in 1914, when she was 45 years old.

This volume was scanned by the University of Toronto and made available by the Internet Archive, 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.
