Andersen's first book of tales, Eventyr, fortalte for born (1835; "Tales, Told for Children"), included such stories as "The Tinderbox," "Little Claus and Big Claus," and "The Princess and the Pea." Two further installments of stories made up the first volume of Eventyr (1837); a second volume was completed in 1842, and to these was added Billedbog uden Billeder (1840; A Picture-book Without Pictures).
