This catalog accompanied the exhibit of a sample of the author’s works held by the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections. The representative selection of materials contained books from the library’s Historical Children’s Literature Collection and the Augusta Baker Collection of African-American Children’s Literature and Folklore. It included examples of some of the first English translations of Andersen’s writings, as well as several of his classic fairy tales and materials exhibiting the ways in which nineteenth- and twentieth-century children’s book illustrators reacted to and interpreted the text.
