Written by Hans Christian Andersen...

Item # 702614 SCRIBNER'S MONTHLY, (New York), April, 1873 

* "The Flea and the Professor" written by Hans Christian Andersen

Near the back of this monthly magazine is a printing of the short story by Hans Christian Anderson titled: "The Flea And The Professor" (see photos for the beginning). The story takes close to two full pages. From my research this printing is contemporary to when Andersen wrote it, being one of the last published pieces he wrote before his death in 1875 in his native Denmark.

The story does not have an Andersen by-line, however included with this genuine issue is a photocopy of the Table of Contents for the volume from which it came, which clearly notes Anderson as the author (see photo).

This issue is complete in 126 pages, is dis bound from a volume without original wrappers (typical), nice & clean condition. Measures 6 1/2 by 9 1/4 inches.
