Rare. No more published. This was to be an ambitious description of the physical and political character of Iceland; however, only this first part was published. The introduction contains a bibliography of Iceland, while the remainder of the volume treats the physical geography of the island, including geological phenomena such as geysers, mineral springs, volcanoes, mineral deposits, etc.
