An English translation of Hugo Gering's 1882 publication, "Íslendzk Æventýri", with stories he found in old Icelandic Arnamagnaean manuscripts. These stories, both ecclesiastic and secular, tell both Icelandic and European tales going as far back as the 9th century.

This is an English translation of Icelandic tales first compiled by Hugo Gering as "Íslendzk Æventýri; Isländische Legenden, Novellen und Märchen".
From the late 1870's into the early 1880's, Hugo Gering traveled repeatedly to Copenhagen University library where he spent countless hours with the original and often fragmented Icelandic parchment manuscripts from the Arnamagnaean collection to research and compile these tales.
The result was two volumes: the first in a more contemporary Icelandic, and the second in Gering's native German. Now for the first time, this translation presents that compilation of legends, novellas and tales in English.
