Originally published monthly as a periodical in variant wrappers and later issued as a nine volume set. Volumes 1-4 were published under the Danish title Morgensternen. Because of the well-written articles it was asked if Andrew Jenson would complete the series in English. Volumes 1-4 have never been translated and published for the general public. Volume 9 includes "The Pioneers of 1847." Flake 4402. Scallawagiana 73.
