Release of a collected edition in German of Historier (Stories) including the illustrations by Vilh. Pedersen (slightly expanded version compared to the Danish one from spring 1855). This edition is published by Lorck's successor, L. Wiedeman from Leipzig. This is a realisation of Lorck's original initiative regarding the tales from 1848, although the stories were actually published in Danish, two years before the German edition.
