Charlotte Melchior's Picture Book

We have some really good children's books here but look at this one that Hans Christian Andersen made. On May 9th, 1874, he wrote:

"In the last [couple of] days I have made a Picture Book for little Charlotte Melchior, mostly pasted on coloured pictures and written verses next to each. The Book is being sent to her today."

I forget how I came across this website, but it's wonderful.
