Sagoskatten
Recently I found a book called "Sagoskatten" at a sale. It's no doubt a fairy-tale book; there are many colorful illustrations of children and little people, but it is in another language that looks almost Sweedish or German.
Thing is- I'm imensely curious as to what stories are in it.

The book is from 1894 and includes such chapter titles as:

Bergatrollet
En kungadotter for en art
Den behjartade flojtblasaren
Pronsessan Blaklint (med bild)
Angsvatten
Lille Muck (med titelbild)
Svanjunfrun

and others...

Can anyone help me find what this book/these stories are about? I tried google-ing it but only got non-English sites...

Please help!

re: Sagoskatten
Looks like Swedish, most likely. Definitely not Norwegian.

A rough translation:

Sagoskatten = "story hoard/treasure"

Bergatrollet = "the mountain troll"
En kungadotter for en art = "a king's daughter for a pea[?]"
Den behjartade flojtblasaren = "the flute player with a heart[?]"
Pronsessan Blaklint (med bild) = "Princess Gray[.?.] (with image)"
Angsvatten = "[.?.]water"
Lille Muck (med titelbild) "Little Muck (with title image)"
Svanjunfrun = "The Swan Maiden"

It would help if you typed out any umlauts or ligatures there might be.

Hope this helps!
