[24] loose plates.Very rare “myriorama” (meaning "thousands of views"), an artistic paper toy intended for children, with separate plates all showing particular landscape views that can be placed side by side in any order to produce a wide variety ("thousands") of landscape views. The present myriorama shows typical Italian landscapes, people, architecture and ruins. Whatever order one chooses for the different plates, it produces a very fine and classical landscape view of Italy.The present myriorama is very rare: WorldCat lists only one example, now preserved at Indiana University. Buijnsters lists two examples, one in his and his wife Leontine Buijnsters-Smets’s own collection (the Buijnsters-Smets collection, now at Tilburg University) and one in the Nederlands Openluchtmuseum at Arnhem.Box a little worn (especially around the edges) and dust-soiled, but overall in good condition. A very rare complete set of the ca. 1825 “myriorama”, showing 24 views of Italy.l Buijnsters, Papertoys, p. 366; Gumuchian 3368 (misdatedca. 1840); Van Veen (auction catalogue) I, 223; WorldCat (1 copy).
