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.
