First edition.

Front wrapper inscribed in Danish to Marie Henriques. Andersen had been a frequent visitor to the home of Therese Henriques (1833-83) during the last fifteen years of his life. The house was full of life and happy days as a large circle of both Danish and foreign musicians and artists visited the salons and parties held there. The friendship with Henriques was established in August Bournonville's home, where the poet first heard the young, talented Therese playing the piano. Immediately, a warm friendship between the two was kindled, and it would last a lifetime.

Provenance: descendants of Henriques family.
