Kjøbenhavn, A. P. Liunge, 1829. Bound in 5 recent uniform marbled cardboardbindings. Gilt title labels to front boards. Minor wear to capitals. Some brownspotting.
Five early first printings by Hans Christian Andersen, all published in the periodical Kjøbenhavns-Posten, 1829, when Andersen was merely 24 years old. These five printings constitute some of the earliest printed pieces by the great fairy-tale author. 1829 constitutes the true breakthrough-year for Andersen and a turning-point in his career and life.
