Jens Peter Trap (1810-1885) 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 Harald Weitemeyer (1846-1921) together with Vigand Falbe-Hansen (1841-1932) and Harald Westergaard (1853-1936). 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 two edition is in old gotic typography, so there are a little more worse to put it in OCR-code, but if anybode has the resurses, You are more than welcome to try. The first three editions are clearly out-of-copyright.
The 1st edition in old gotic typography was digitized 2015 by the Danish Royal Library and adapted to Project Runeberg in June 2016 by Ralph E. The work started 1856 the edition in smaler booklets for subscribers, and so the first book volume was ready 1858. Google made a digitation of some volumes of this edition in 2007, but not in so good quality.
The 2nd edition in old gotic typography was digitized in July-August 2010 by University of Toronto (read more for each volume!) and adapted to Project Runeberg in June 2014 by Ralph E. In April 2019, OCR text for the 1st and 2nd editions was generated with Tesseract 4.0 (dan_frak).
Digitization started at Project Runeberg 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.
Brigham Young University had digitized the 3rd edition in
July-September 2011 and made it available through the Internet Archive
4 part 1,
4 part 2,
This volume was scanned by Det Kongelige Bibliotek, Denmark's 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
