The following is a guest post by Brian Kuhagen, now the law serials cataloger in the Collection Services Division at the Law Library of Congress. Brian mostly works on classifying older serial titles in our foreign law collections.
In mid-December, I traveled to Oslo for the holiday season. While there, I was able to take a tour of the Norwegian Parliament, which included a special display of the Norwegian Constitution.
The constitution was on display because 2014 was the Bicentenary of the Norwegian Constitution, as Elin Hofverberg wrote about in an earlier blog post. The picture above is of the first two signature pages of the original 1814 constitution.
If you want to get a closer look at the signatures, wax seals, or simply want to practice your Norwegian by reading the constitution, the Norwegian Parliament has posted a high quality scan of the original 1814 constitution.
