Life and Works – searchable version of the timetable

Hans Christian Andersen's life from 1805 to 1875 is described day by day in the timetable.

The timetable is an online version of the book H.C. Andersens liv. Dag for dag ('The Life of Hans Christian Andersen. Day By Day'. 1998. More information here). It describes Hans Christian Andersen's life rather extensively. Of course, all details about Andersen's life cannot be contained in one book, but the contents of the timetable are comprehensive – indexed and searchable.
