During the printing of this Dictionary, sheets of these works have, by the kindness of the Editors, been forwarded to me, so that í have been able to refer to the printed pages long before they were published, as e. g. under kitla (p. 340) and matvælar. Prof. Unger has also communicated some highly interesting extracts from an old Norse version of ' Vitae Patrum ' (cited yitae Patrum, Unger), given in the Addenda (kaka, kaza, etc.), for which kindness í hereby tender him my hearty thanks: a few minor errors and corrections have been pointed out to me by Mr. Thorkelsson of Reykjavik.
