This reproduction of one of Lothar Meggendorfer's books unfolds to present a 4 foot long panoramam presenting a series of rooms and outside scenes from a Victorian era home. Each scene has pop-up and movable elements complete with figures and even pets. Printed in German with the title Das Puppenhaus. Interestingly in Peter Haining's reference on Pop-up books he cites a French title of this book - Maison de Poupée - and does not attribute Meggendorfer. This reproduction is of the second edition of the original, the differences between the first and second being in the first scene where the mule and cart have been replaced by an antique car [presumably a Mercedes....] and in the kitchen scene where the little girl has changed from sitting on the chair stirring a pot with her legs outstretched to a little girl sat with a coffee grinder and her ankles demurely crossed. 21x26 cm. The corners and edges have slight wear. There are a few old mis-folds, now corrected, but all moving elements and pop-ups are complete and working.
