Asbjørnsen in 2012

As part of research in Asbjørnsen, I was put in contact with a fellow researcher in Norway. Although he has yet to visit the collection here in Dublin, he cited me in a recent book that was published to mark the bicentenary of Asbjørnsen’s birth in Norway. Although I can’t read Norweigan, the book is a delight, filled with beautiful pictures and portraits I had not seen before. I was very proud to have been able to contribute in a very small way to this commemoration of a great scientist and story-teller.
