[FI Ethno] Suomen suvun pakanallinen jumalanpalvelus / Krohn

Hmph. There is a lovely summary review of the shamanistic rites and practices of Fenno-Ugric peoples, "Suomen suvun pakanallinen jumalanpalvelus", written by Julius Krohn and edited by his son Kaarle Krohn. The book was published in 1894, and the copyrights of both the author and the editor have expired even in life+70 countries.

I was trying to find the book online. The information at seems to indicate that the book has been scanned. I was unable to access it, however. Do I understand correctly that Google has taken a book from Harvard University collections, scanned it, and is now selling these scans in cheap POD format?

Anyhoo, while I have the book in my bookshelf, it would be helpful for other interested readers to be able to read from an online resource. has some references to Kaarle Krohn, but this work doesn't seem to be with them. Any hints?

Interesting subject; a pitty my Finnish is so rusty :lol: When looking for library references in Google Books, I could only find paper versions, no scans. Couldn‘t you scan your book and upload it to instead? I’ve now also scanned a book, will register at and upload it today :)
