Original Danish Manuscript of The Little Mermaid

“The manuscript for ‘The Little Mermaid’ was stolen from The Hans Christian Andersen Museum in July 1992 along with the manuscripts for ‘The Elf Mound,’ ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes,’ and other objects. Thus we are reduced to present a scan of a facsimile at this place. We take the opportunity to encourage everyone who might have any knowledge of the further destiny of the manuscripts to contact us! The original manuscript was a draft. It was written in the summer of 1836 and the fairy tale was published on April 7th, 1837 in ‘Eventyr, fortalte for Børn, Første Samling. Tredje Hæfte. 1837.'”
