A
Rit þesz Islenzka Laerdóms-Lista Felags
Because of transliteration problems, primarily with the "thorn" character used in Icelandic (þ) and the "ae ligature", there are several variants on this title.

One of the records in the Bibliot. Nat. France cat. gives the title untransliterated (as above), noting that that it later had the royal designation (title B), but does not indicate when the change occurred.

Another record in the Bibliot. Nat. France cat. gives the title transliterated as: Rit bess Islenzka Laerdoms-Lista Felags, with the following note: Mémoires de la Société littéraire Islandaise. This record (for the set of 15 Bindini) does not indicate the later inclusion of the royal designation.

The Bodleian Library at Oxford (via COPAC cat.) gives the title transliterated as: Rit thess Islenzka Laerdoms-Lista Felags. This record (for the set of 15 Bindini) also does not indicate the later inclusion of the royal designation.

Other records from the COPAC cat., including a record from Leeds Univ. cat. give the title as Rit þess Íslenzka lærdóms-lista félags.

A record in the GBV German Union cat. gives the title transliterated as: Rit dess Islenzka laerdoms lista Felags and does make it clear that this title was for the period 1780 to 1786 only; it does not, however, list Bindini 15 for title B.

The record in Scudder #643a gives the title transliterated as: Rit pèsz Islenzka Laerdöms, citing only 1780 - 1782.

In addition, Reuss, v.1, p.5 gives the title transliterated as Rit besz Islenzka Laerdoms-Lista Felags.

A record in the Royal Danish Lib. cat. gives the corporate author name in Danish as Islandske Literatur-Selskab, and the title in Icelandic as Rit þess Islenzka Lærdóms-lista Félags.

Pogg., v.1, col.205 cites an article by Stephan Björnsen in Bd. II of Islandske Litteratur-Selskabs Skrifter, which appears to be a Danish rendering of the title of the Icelandic journal. Since we have been unable to determine that this journal was ever issued in a Danish translation, its seems likely that Poggendorff has merely chosen to cite the title in a more familiar language.

Islandske Litteratur-Selskabs Skrifter
[Pogg., v.1, col.205 cites an article by Stephan Björnsen (1730-1798) in Bd. II; this is not an abbreviated journal title, but rather a cryptic reference, since it gives the title in Danish, when, in fact, the journal appears not to have been issued in a Danish edition.]
