Comment on 17.1.-14.2.1797

This is probably August von Kotzebue’s novel Ildegerte, Königin von Norwegen. Historische Novelle, 1788, translated into Danish Ildegerte, Dronning i Norge en historisk Novelle by P.D. Faber 1791.
Thorvaldsen probably brought along the Danish edition, cf. Thiele I, p. 207, which is no longer in Thorvaldsen’s book collection because it was sold at the auction of his belongings, cat. no 1007.
Thiele I, p. 86 renders the title as Ildegerda.
