Ivar the Viking (Illustrated) by Paul du Chaillu

*Includes Table of Contents

Paul Belloni du Chaillu (July 31, 1835 – April 29, 1903) is best known for being an anthropologist who found the existence of gorillas and the Pygmys in central Africa, but he also researches the prehistory of Scandinavia, developing expertise on the Nordic people. Along the way, he eventually wrote about the Vikings, who continue to capture people’s imagination today.

His 1889 work The Viking Age (also in two volumes) was a very broad study of the early history, manners, and customs of the ancestors of the English-speaking nations. He studied hundreds of Sagas that describe the lives of the Vikings from the Stone Age to medieval times. The story of "Ivar the Viking "depicts the actual lives of Norse chiefs, and it discusses the customs and religion of the Vikings as well.

This edition of du Chaillu’s Ivar the Viking is specially formatted with illustrations of du Chaillu and depictions of Vikings. A table of contents is included.
