1 Giraud, S. Lewis Animal Life in Fact, Fancy and Fun
London Daily Sketch and Sunday Graphic Ltd. First Edition Hardcover Very Good Very Good Jacket 
n.d. 1938 [Montanaro] One of the Bookano pop-up book series that were published during the 1930s / 40s. There are 6 full colour pop-ups (giraffe, elephant & tiger, lions, buffalo, polar bears & seal and camel) and numerous black and white wood-cut illustrations on the other pages that take you through the animal kingdom, via the different animal categories. Richly illustrated covered boards (front and back, see photo) and backstrip. 44 pages (unpaginated); size 260 mm x 205 mm. What is particularly unusual about this particular copy is that it comes with the original box. This edition was also issued by Bookano under a different title: 'Bookano Zoo no. 1', a copy of which I also have for sale. Condition: Binding: Corners rubbed. Backstrip has been reinforced with archival tape. Interior: Browning to some pages - quite 'normal' for the Bookano series due to the type of paper used, otherwise Very good. Note: I have many other Bookano books for sale, together with other pop-ups. Please browse my Pop-up / Panorama / Movable catalogue. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.

3 Giraud, S. Lewis Bookano Zoo
London Strand Publications 1939 First Edition Hardcover Very Good 
6 full colour double page pop-ups by Bookano (Giraffe, Elephant, Lions, Bison, Polar bears and Seal, Camel). The text provides informative descriptions of animals from around the world, interspersed with stories related to animals. The Bookano books brought the pop-up into vogue between the 1930's to the 50's. They were published in many formats: as a series of yearly annuals, an ABC book, a counting book, stories about Jesus, an adventure building book and a series of rhymes. I think that it had been intended that this zoo book would be the first of a series of books about zoo animals, but I believe this to be the first and only one published. This edition was however also issued by Bookano under another title: 'Animal Life in Fact, Fancy and Fun', a copy of which I also have for sale. Condition: Superficial wear to paper cover over backstrip, small square on cover where the top surface of paper has rubbed off (see photo), corners worn and edges rubbed. Binding nice and tight. Interior: All pop-ups fine and in good working order. Slight browning to page edges - a very common 'feature' in these Bookano books due to the type of paper / card stock that was used. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.

4 Giraud, S. Lewis (edited and Produced by) Hans Andersen's Fairy Stories (Bookano Series)
London Strand Publications First Edition Hardcover Fine 
n.d. 1938 [Montanaro] Four double page pop-ups (one with two stage action) which, as with all Bookanos, can be viewed from all sides. 3 full page colour pictures and numerous other black and white wood cuts. 8 abridged stories from Hans Christian Andersen. This was to have been the first in a series of Andersen Bookano books, but to my knowledge no more were published. Specific condition: Binding: Minor rub to top / bottom edge of spine and bottom right corner (see photo). Personal inscription on front free end paper. Interior: Pop ups in perfect order and all pages clean and crisp. The rough art paper that was used in Bookano books often results in grubby marks and a softening of the texture of the pages. This edition however is really very pristine and obviously has not been opened very much. Note: I have many other Bookano books for sale, together with other pop-ups. Please browse my Pop-up / Panorama / Movable catalogue. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
