What's a good edition of the Poetic Edda in Old Norse?
May 1, 2014 7:15 PM Subscribe
I would like to buy and own a printed edition (not a CD-ROM or an online text) of the Poetic Edda in Old Norse. I don't mind if a translation is included or not, but the original text must be. Can anyone suggest any specific editions? Include ISBNs if possible! Thanks.

- I don't really mind what language the critical apparatus, notes, etc. are in. I suppose English or German would be best but Norwegian or Icelandic would not be a dealbreaker.
- Secondhand or new, either would be okay.
- Paperback or hardback, either would be okay.
- I want to avoid buying a POD version of an old edition snarfed from Google Books if possible (but would be okay with buying an actual original printing of an old edition, if it wasn't too expensive).
- My ideal purchase would be the Codex Regius equivalent of Bernard Muir's "Exter Anthology" (the two-volume set, not the DVD!). Except cheaper.
