Misc. Comments

One of the earliest works by Ludolf Nielsens. This first edition is made from the manuscript in Nielsens handwritten book of songs composed in 1897 located in the Royal Library Copenhagen. The poet is completely forgotten, probably a friend Nielsens. It's impossible to find his dates or his first name. The title "Havfruen synger" is a bit confusing, because the song ( also titled Damekor ) has a patrioctic issue.

Was Nielsen known to be friends with architect and author (Jens Erik) Carl Rasmussen (1841-1893)?
