DE NEGERHUT HET SLAVENLEVEN IN AMERIKA, voor de Emancipate, opnieuw vertaald en ingeleid, met 50, meest oorspronkelijke illustratien. Den 20sten Mei 1852 verscheen in "t licht Uncle Toms Cabin van Mrs. Beecher Stowe, en het veertigjarig jubili'e van dat verschijnen kon, dunkt ons, niet waardiger gevierd worden dan door eene geheel nieeeuwe en getrouwe vertaling van dat merkwaardige boek, het gevolg van een onweerstaanbaren aandrang in een echt christelijk genie. I AM TRYING TO IDENTIFY AN OLD BOOK IN THIS LANGUAGE WHICH I THOUGHT TO BE GERMAN ORIGINALLY!!! yOUR HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

Explanation:
The book seems to be from 1892, since it mentions the 40th anniversary of the publication of Uncle Tom's Cabin in 1852. And it is in Dutch. Steve

Dutch or Afrikaan


Explanation:
The text in not Norwegian - it must be Dutch or Afrikaan - and seems to be about slavery in the US.

You should enter it in the Dutch-English section if you want it properly translated.

Good luck!

This is not in Norwegian, however, but in Dutch. Perhaps this will help you somewhat...
