1 Bingham, Clifton; Transformation / Dissolving Pictures The Puzzle Picture Book [movable]
London / New York Ernest Nister / E. P. Dutton First Edition Hardcover Very Good Hilda K. Robinson 
[1900] Contains 6 chromolithograph dissolving scenes [also called slats / transformations]. Each movable consists of four small pictures with text that poses a question relating to the picture and when the tab is pulled at the page bottom another four pictures are revealed showing the answer to the question. I believe that this was also published in German with the title: Ueberraschungen Aller Art. 25x20 cm. 16pp. Blue and white floral pattern end papers. Olive green cloth backstrip. Nister number: 615. Hunt - p.339. Not in Montanaro. Corners, top/bottom of backstrip rubbed. Boards clean and bright with slight marking to lower board. Page edges are a bit fragile, due to type of paper. There is some old, but clean, reinforcement to some of the inner page edges. One hole for tab has been neatly reinforced. All movables work fine and are complete. This is extremely scarce and a very good copy. 48mo - over 3" - 4" tall. 
Price: 750.00 GBP
