Contains 8 pages of moveables - dissolving slats - in wonderful chromolithograph. The dissolving slats work like a venetian blind - you pull a tab at the bottom of the page and this causes the displayed illustration to disappear behind a second illustration, thus presenting a new scene. So, across the 8 pages of moveables there are actually 16 illustrations. Published in Germany, c. 1893, by Theo Stroefer as 'Heitere Stunden Ein Wandelbuch Mit Reimen von Eugen Reichenbach'. Although Nister started publishing children's books in 1877, he did not publish any moveables until 1890; this book is most likely the third moveable that was published by Nister. [Hunt] The accompanying stories are presented in 4/5 line stanzas and these text pages are illustrated with line drawings. 325x250 mm / unpaginated, 20pp. Blue and white floral end papers. Condition: Boards badly rubbed and stained with the backstrip frayed with a few little tears. Hinges cracked but still holding. One page has been reattached. Staining to corners of fixed end papers. All mechanisms have been restored and are fully working with replacement tabs. All of the chromolithographs are complete and in good condition. Most of the mounts around the tabs have close tears [repaired], presumably due to over enthusiastic operation in the past. As with most Nister books this has been printed on early wood pulp paper and it is now quite brittle and hence has edge chips in places.
