Astrid Stampe's Picture Book 1853

Hans Christian Andersen made several picture books for the children and grandchildren of his friends. We know of approximately a dozen picture books, all made after 1850. This picture book, which the poet created together with his friend Adolph Drewsen, is made for the one year old Astrid Stampe (1852-1892), the great granddaughter of Hans Christian Andersen's fatherly benefactor Jonas Collin.
