Lot 803: Eminent Danish composer and conductor (1817–1890). ANS in German, signed "Gade," one page on the reverse of his 3.25 x 2 personal calling card, no date. In part (translated): "Andersen arrived today and wishes to speak with you…he wants you to translate some of his poems." In very good condition, with soiling to the edges and front of the card, and surface loss to corners of the front from previous mounting. The renowned fairy tale author Hans Christian Andersen collaborated on at least nine works with Gade, providing the text set to Gade's music. A desirable association piece.
