This is an auction for SIGRID UNDSET by Kristin Lavransdatter.

From Wikipedia:

"Kristin Lavransdatter is a trilogy of historical novels written by Norwegian Nobel laureate Sigrid Undset (1882-1949). The individual novels are:

* Kransen (The Wreath or The Garland), first published in 1920

* Husfrue (The Wife or The Mistress of Husaby), published in 1921


* Korset (The Cross), published in 1922.

*Kransen and Husfrue were translated from the original Norwegian as The Bridal Wreath and The Mistress of Husaby, respectively, in the first English translation. This work formed the basis of Undset receiving the 1928 Nobel Prize in Literature, which was awarded to her "principally for her powerful descriptions of Northern life during the Middle Ages". Her work is much admired for its historical and ethnological accuracy. The cycle follows the life of Kristin Lavransdatter, a fictitious Norwegian woman living in the 14th century. Kristin grows up in Sil in Gudbrandsdalen, the daughter of a well-respected and affluent farmer. She experiences a number of conflicts in her relationships with her parents, and her husband Erlend, in medieval Norway. She finds comfort and conciliation in her Catholic faith... Kristin Lavransdatter was notable and to some extent controversial in its time, for its explicit characterization of sex in general and female sexuality in particular; and its treatment of morally ambiguous situations. It was the main basis for Undset being awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature."
