FREYJA IN THE DWARFS' CAVE.
IN preparing the Second Edition of this little volume
of tales from the Northern Mythology for the press,
the Authors have thought it advisable to omit the
conversations at the beginning and end of the
chapters, which had been objected to as breaking the
course of the narrative. They have carefully revised
the whole, corrected many inaccuracies and added
fresh information drawn from sources they had not
had an opportunity of consulting when the volume first
appeared. The writers to whose works the
Authors have been most indebted, are Simrock,
Mallet, Laing, Thorpe, Howitt and Dasent.
