    I need a copy of the Elder Edda not in translation, but in OldNorse/Icelandic. I can’t seem to find one anywhere. I suppose I need a bookshop in Reyjavik, but I can’t seem to track anything down. I had an old paperback which was available when I was a student in 1956, but it has mainly disintegrated. I’d be very grateful for help.
