Stock Code: 5350
FIRST EDITION. Undated [1891]. Folio, unpaginated. 8 moveables in colour with facing text and each with movement tab: The Angler, The Naturalist, The Forgotten Latchkey, The Lion, The Elephant, The Portrait-Painter, The Musician and The Pianist. Printed paper-covered boards with recased with sympathetic new cloth spine. Small repair to lower edge of upper board; lower board surface soiled and lightly scuffed. Minor wear to edges. 2-inch unobtrusive closed tear to pocket edge of The Angler; a little offsetting from images to text, and a little scattered foxing and fingermarking. Some movables with minor repairs (Lion’s tail etc). A bright, tight copy with complete moveables all in good working order. Condition: Very Good.
An excellent example of the ingenious animated picture books of Meggendorfer, with cunningly constructed complex lever mechanisms. Scarce, particularly in this condition.
