Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with book collections recorded in inventories that were registered in the northern parts of Norway, namely Troms & Senja and Salten. These northern regions possessed no institutions of higher learning such as Latin schools, and might therefore be considered to be peripheral when compared to districts comprising major cities such as Trondheim and Bergen. The chapter examines book collections recorded in the Troms & Senja clerical inventories: Clerical probate records have been preserved in these regions for the period 1697-1791 and it examines those recorded in the period 1697-1753. The chapter analyses book collections recorded in the Salten clerical probate records in the period 1701 to 1744. During this time-span, more than twenty negotiations of assets were recorded, but only ten of the inventories give detailed information on book occurrences.
