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.
