This is the earliest comprehensive scientific
treatise written on glaciers. If published when
written (1795), Sveinn Pálssonïs ÊIcelandic Ice
MountainsË would have ranked as one of the
premier scientific books of the 18th century.
The Icelandic Literary Society (est. 1816), in
association witth the Icelandic Glaciological
Society and thek International Glaciological
Society, has published an English translation of
Sveinn Pálssonïs (1762-1840) ÊDraft of a
Phisical, Geographical, and Historical
Description of Icelandic Ice Mountains of the
Basis of a Journey to the Most Prominent of Them
in 1792-19-794 with Four Maps and Eight
Perspective DrawingsË. This annotated and
illustrated (also with modern and satelliete
images) English translation is the result of a
collaborative effort between two
geologists/glaciologists, Richard S. Williamsm,
Jr., U.S. Geological Survey UUSGS), and Oddur
Sigurðsson, National Energy Authority, Iceland.
