ANDERSEN, HANS CHRISTIAN. - A Poet's Bazaar. From the Danish ... by Charles Beckwith, Esq.
London, Bentley 1846. Three volumes publisher's red cloth decorated in blind (the first volume rebacked with the original pine preserved); frontispiece portrait. Some minor flaws and signs of use (a corner torn from one leaf well away from the text is the worst I can see); a pretty good set from the Andersen collection of biographer and buff Eiler Hoeg with appropriate bookplates. ¶ First English edition. Travels south and east through Europe to Greece and Constantinople. 1846 was Andersen's breakthrough year in England; three translations of his tales and this appeared. He was deeply unhappy with Mary Howitt, the first into print, but apparently tolerant enough of the rest. Howitt translated from German which is probably why this specifies that Beckwith (Beckwith Lohmeyer in full, an English resident of Copengagen who taught Andersen English) worked from the original.AUD 850.00 [Appr.: EURO 583.75 US$ 638.8 | £UK 497.75 | JP¥ 71133] Book number 8839
