1862: Billedbog

Pages from a scrapbook billedbog (Danish: “picture book”) made by Hans Christian Andersen and his friend Adolph L. Drewsen for eight-year-old Jonas Drewsen. Andersen and Drewsen both contributed to the collages and wrote stories and poems around the pictures and in the margins. I have lightly edited the images and brightened the colors. (source)
