The Puzzle Picture Book [movable], Bingham, Clifton; Transformation / Dissolving Pictures
5 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

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.

The Magic Window Storybook An In Action Book, Burrows, Peggy
6 Burrows, Peggy The Magic Window Storybook An In Action Book
U.S.A. Rand McNally & Company and Phillips Publishers, Inc. 1954 Hardcover Very Good Arthur von Frankenberg and Seymour Fleishman 
The 'magic window' is a small cardboard frame [similar size to a pair of glasses] around clear red film. The reader looks through this window at the illustrations in the book and hidden secrets are revealed! There are clues in the accompanying verses. In many of the pictures when you look through the window the change of image gives the idea of movement. This book has the original Magic Window, which is written on it and which is quite rare as they are usually lost / damaged and replaced or just not there. Paper covered illustrated boards, laminated with a yellow ground. Brightly illustrated end papers. 22x19 cm. Unpaginated, c. 28pp. Short split top / tail spine. Other than this the boards are remarkably clean and fresh, as is the contents, including the magic window.

Peep Bo Pictures, Ernest Nister - Movable Slats
12 Ernest Nister - Movable Slats Peep Bo Pictures
London Ernest Nister 1898 First Edition Hardcover Fair G. H. Thompson, E. S. Hardy, W. Foster et al 
Delightful and extremely rare movable book from Nister comprising of six transformation chromolithograph illustrations. The transformations are made up of horizontal slats operated by a tab that changes the illustration from one scene into another. So there is one scene of two cats having afternoon tea in a teashop and then they go on a boat trip at sea in a boat driven by a Puffin; a hen with her eggs just hatching and then taking her chickens out on the lake. As expected with Nister they are beautiful and sugar sweet! In Hunt, p.316. Not in Montanaro. 20x17.5 cm; 16pp.Scuffed boards with worn corners. This book suffers from the common problem with Nister books of having been published on wood pulp paper which is now very brittle, particularly around the edges. The book binder has re-set the pages and replaced the end papers [retaining the original front and rear free end papers] and reinforced some of the edges with archival tape, but the book is still fragile with chips / abrasions around the page edges / hinge lines - hence overall 'fair' condition. Some of the tabs have been replaced / repaired and all transformations work [to be operated with care!]. A very rare book with lovely illustrations! 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.

Bookano Zoo, Giraud, S. Lewis
15 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.

Hans Andersen's Fairy Stories (Bookano Series), Giraud, S. Lewis (edited and Produced by)
16 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.
