JULY, 1818.

ART. 1.-Iceland; or the Journal of a Residence in that Island, during the Years 1814 and 1815, containing Observations on the Natural Phenomena, History, Literature, and Antiquities of the Island; and the Religion, Character, Manners, and Customs of its Inhabitants. By Ebenezer Henderson, Doctor in Philosophy, Member of the Royal Society of Gottenburgh, &c. Illustrated with a Map and Engravings. 2 vols. 8vo. Edinburgh.

ICELAND, situated on the confines of the habitable part of our

globe, completely refutes the notion, at one time so boldly asserted, that a mild climate and a clear atmosphere were essential to the full development of the human faculties; for we find that here, without any of the soft and genial air, and the bright and azure skies of Greece and Italy, the human intellect always has been, and continues to be, cultivated with zeal and success-that even here, the Muses have not disdained to pay their frequent visits, nor have their votaries courted them in vain. It was on this desolate and dreary spot, amidst the conterminous regions of frost and fire, under dense clouds and chilling mists, that the Scalds sang their tales of other times, as we find them collected in the Edda; that the historians composed their Sagas, and the legislators a code of laws, the spirit and principle of which continue to the present day. In other nations, the cultivation of letters has usually followed wealth and luxury; in Iceland, they flourished in the midst of poverty and distress. The time too when these exertions were made is not the least singular part of the history-at a period when the darkest ignorance was spread over the European world. Whether therefore we are disposed to examine the natural phenomena which this island exhibits, or the singular character of the people by whom it is inhabited whether we direct our attention to the physical or moral circumstances existing on this spot of land, heaved up, to all appearance, by the operation of fire from the depth of the frozen ocean, we may venture to assert that Iceland will be found to stand alone and without a parallel.

With regard to many of the natural phenomena, as well as to the character of the people, we are probably in possession of more accurate information than of most other distant countries. It has been visited at various times, and described by men of known talent and
