Richly illustrated by Kay Nielsen

First US edition in this format, first printing; Doran had also published a large format edition in 1914. The richness of the Danish Nielsen's colour images for this lavish illustrated book of Norse pagan mythology was achieved by a four-colour process, in contrast to many of the illustrations prepared by his contemporaries, such as Rackham and Dulac, which characteristically utilised a traditional three-colour process.
