Forkortet: The western slopes of the Scandinavian peninsula do not generally extend quite to the sea; but we see there low almost level parts, which the author calls the Norwegian coast plain. The figures on pp. 1 and 2 show two views from the coast a little north of Bergen; the low lands there do not consist of loose materials but of solid rock and belong o the coast plain. This begins with small naked islands surrounded by shallow water, farther towards the inland in extends as a low brim around the higher islands or builds for itself rather considerable islands; still in the outer parts of the fjords it may be observed along the sides. The coast plain generally rises towards the land. The height is differ- ent, probably 100 metres may be the uppermost limit. This feature in the geography of our country has formerly been noted by the author and by other observers as regards portions of the coast; but it is for the first time here taken as a whole. The sketchmap annexed to the boook shows the coast plain along the whole coast (black). The small map on p. 4 shows a detail south of Bergen. At the uppermost figure on p.5 we see a rather high mountain and a small one of the Bømlo-island rising over the plain.
