The amazing "Kristen Lavransdatter" Norwegian Trilogy by Sigrid Undset, english translated hardcover box-set edition with slipcase from 1946. Contains three books The Bridal Wreath, The Mistress of Husaby, and The Cross - books themselves are near fine condition like they've hardly been read being protected by slipcase, although previous owner did write their name and date on the pasted-down front page. Slipcase also very nice for its age, the only issues it has some moisture staining and small tear forming at the bottom.
