Originally published in Dresden, Germany 1837, this is a beautiful set of etchings of three of the finest Norway Stave Kirches, all fortunately still existing and in fine condition. I visited Urnes in 2010 in the middle of its extensive and careful restoration. There are 9 plates on Urnes enclosed in a heavy card with 3 pages of description. Nine plates also on Hitterdal, some of the outside, some inside, and some detail of doorways. Borgund stave kirche has six lithographs, also enclosed in heavy card paper on which 3 pages of introduction is printed. All plates are 30 by 46 cm and all are in fine condition. All this is enclosed in a clamshell box covered in beige linen that is some soiled. It is not clear when this Norwegian facsimile edition was published, between 1965 to 1985 I am guessing. .
