A Lutheran hymnal printed in Icelandic for the immigrant community in and around Manitoba, the title of this work translates as, "Hymns and Other Songs of the Community and Sunday Schools." Canada has the largest Icelandic population outside of Iceland, established in 1875 when a group of immigrants fled a volcanic eruption and settled in Winnipeg. This work is rare, with only five copies located in OCLC, at Cornell, University of Minnesota, North Dakota State Library, University of Victoria in B.C., and Library and Archives Canada.
