Weatherly, F.E. (introduction by) - WHAT THE CHILDREN LIKE

Description: London, Ernest Nister/ E.P. Dutton New York Printed in Bavaria No. 853 1897 approx. Doublepage pop-up scenes (5) full of children - blind man's buff, boating, bicycling, farmyard etc. . Folio cloth spine pictorial boards (spine worn to head & foot/covers edge worn) 31pp. Titlepage torn without loss but with old cellotape marks, gutters of 3 leaves reinforced with newer linen tape, a few edge tears never touching printed or pop-up areas but 3 with old tape removal marks (less than 1" into margin). The pop-ups are all complete and in working order with only part of one stag's horn in facsimile. One pony's tail re-attached from the back & a few wrong folds strengthened on back (invisibly). All sorts of fragile pieces such as duck heads, ribbons flying, fingers etc are all intact. The text page edges have fared less well with some edge fingering and some edge chips but never affecting any print. The pop-up leaves are on thicker and better quality paper and have edge rubbing but no tears to edges (MONTANARO 335).
