Jens Peter Trap compiled and published Statistisk-topographisk Beskrivelse af Kongeriget Danmark (statistical-topographical description of Denmark) in 5 volumes (1856-1859) and a 2nd edition in 7 parts in 6 volumes (1872-1879). The 3rd edition (5 volumes, 1898-1906) was edited by H. Weitermeyer together with V. Falbe-Hansen and H. Westergaard. The 4th edition (10 volumes, 1919-1930) was edited by Gunnar Knudsen and Peter Skautrup. The 5th edition (31 parts in 15 volumes, 1958-1972) was edited by Niels Nielsen, Peter Skaustrup, and Povl Engelstoft. Read more about the editions in the Danish Wikipedia.
As with any encyclopedia, each edition represents its time and can't replace the others. With time, Project Runeberg hopes to present all parts and volumes of all five editions. We assign URLs where "trap/3-2" contains the 3rd edition's 2nd volume. The first three editions are clearly out-of-copyright.
Digitization started in April 2012 with a copy of the 3rd edition. The first volume contains an alphabetical index of personal names (Personalregister, paginated 1-262), which is presented as a separate part ("3-p") of the electronic edition.
All pages are scanned in 600 dpi bitonal TIFF G4. The searchable OCR text is available for online proofreading by volunteers like you. Pages with illustrations other than line art are additionally scanned in 300 dpi colour JPEG. Large format plates are captured with camera.
Google has digitized some parts of the 1st edition in May 2007 at the New York Public Library (volumes Almindelig Deel, Speciel Deel, 2. Bind).
