Titre : Tjaldbúðin - Partial set of 8 Volumes (Vols....
This is a series of publications on the history and proceedings of the Icelandic Evangelical Lutheran Church in North America, headquartered in Winnipeg, by a Pastor who had served that congregation and who carried on a heated dispute with another luminary of the Icelandic Lutheran Church in North America, Rev. Jon Bjarnason. Despite the removal of the author and the place of publication to Denmark, the content of the periodical remained focused on the churh he left behind in Winnipeg, reflecting in part the fact the good Reverend had scores to settle with his rival in Canada.

In sum, detailed account of church affairs of early Icelandic immigrants to North America. Hjartar does not list this entire series, which appears to be an error on his part, given the criteria he sets for inclusion of publications relating to "western" Icelanders - i.e., North American content predominated even though the place of publication shifted to Europe.
