Contains 8 full colour pop-ups, four of these with movable elements incorporated within the pop-up and in addition there is a moveable picture on the front cover. The text is an adridged version of Grimm's fairy tale. Kubasta is a renowned and well respected creator of children's pop-up books. Born in Vienna he studied Architecture in Prague in the 1930's and spent the rest of his career there. His work on pop-ups did not start until the 1950's but from that time he created approximately 125 children's pop-up books, mainly during the 50's and 60's. His books were exported out of Czechoslovakia by Bancroft, a London publishing house. Many of his books are characterised by the combination of pop-up and moveable elements, such as can be found in this book, Hansel and Gretel. Condition: Binding: Small edge tear and piece missing from rear cover (c. 3x1 cm.); personal inscription on rear cover. Yellow cloth backstip a bit grubby. Interior: The stick moving the witch into the oven has been neatly repaired. Some of the tabs to operate the moveable elements have become 'soft' with use, but all pop ups and moveable elements operate well. Note: I have many other other pop-ups. Please browse my Pop-up / Panorama / Movable catalogue. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
