Hans Christian Andersen. Good Wishes for the Children. Cambridge, Massachusetts: The Riverside Press, 1873. [catalog record]
Purchased from Benjamin Tighe, 1967.
Benjamin Tighe’s expert eye helped him find remarkable American children’s books for AAS, including this rare edition of Andersen fairy tales. Two Boston women, one an artist and the other a translator, prepared this edition as a fundraiser for Children’s Hospital. Published in a small edition for a wealthy audience, the book was issued in lithographed paper-covered boards.
