All in all an investment of an estimated NOK1468 (US$193 or GB£122.46 equivalent), shipping, handling, and fees exclusive.

And yes, I did get something to eat eventually. Am still not happy about not being given fair warning on the use of the kitchen, though.

Edited to add: Come to think of it, I should perhaps have had a translation of the Scandinavian titles:

  1. The Norwegian American Line 1910-1960.
  2. Nordenfjeldske Steamship Company 1857 - 1957.
  3. Bergensfjord. The ship which survived it all.
  4. Northwards with the Coastal Express.
  5. THE FLEET AND THE ARMOURCLADS. A consideration and appeal concerning the matters of Swedish Safety.

All in all the books have 1955 pages between them.
