      In that case you might to know that at

      <http://emedien.ub.uni-greifswald.de/ebooks/altnord-wb/baetke_digital.pdf>

      you can fill out a very brief form with your address and
      e-mail, confirm ‘dass Sie die heruntergeladene Datei nicht
      an Dritte weitergeben’, and freely download a 77 MB complete
      digital facsimile of the first edition (1965-8) of Walter
      Baetke’s _Wörterbuch zur altnordischen Prosaliteratur_. I
      only just found it, and I already like it. For instance, it
      has an entry for <fyrirboðsmenn>, which we did not find in
      any of the usual dictionaries:

      *fyrir-boðsmenn* m.pl. vom Hausherrn (zu e. Hochzeit od.
      e. Gelage) besonders geladene (u. vor dem Hauptgast
      anwesende (Gäste)
