Gallery - H.C. Andersen: "There is no count of all the sittings. The preserved material contains approximately 175 different photographs in all and covers approximately the first 30 years of the history of photography and approximately the last 30 years of Hans Christian Andersen's life. It is not too much to call this as a national treasure. Since Andersen and his friends also provided the pictures with a wealth of lively commentary in journals and letters, it becomes possible to form a vivid picture of Andersen himself on display." and on this site english as written by a dane

Hans Christian Andersen had already stepped onto the pathway to fame, when the photograph was Invented in1839, and since Andersen was just as unspoiled and youthfully interested in his own appearance as photographers were in immortalizing the famous author, the result was that, apart from his other services, Hans Christian Andersen became the most thoroughly photographed person in the infancy of the history of photography.

this is good taste in academic danish, comma new clause, but so so dated as english - I used to write like that as a teenager in the fifties because I read lots of victorian books and knew no better!
