SWEETS FROM FAIRY LAND

London/ NY: Ernest Nister/ E. P. Dutton. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Presumed first or early edition. Large 4t0, chromolithographed pictorial covers, pages disbound. No author identified, nor year of publication. c. 1880-90. Distinctive movable with 8 movable plates, plus text illustrated with line drawings, so that when a tab is pulled changes the configuration of the story told. The story "Your's Sincerely" tells the story of a young girl's affection for both her pet dog and pet cat; when the tab is pulled the picture of her with dog switched to that of her with cat. Leaves are disbound but all the chromolithographed switching plates are in working order. Frail paper is chipped about around most edges. Boards worn, bruised and stained here and there but not affecting internals. Scarce, even in this condition. WorldCat identifies only 8 institutions with a copy. Printed in Bavaria. Fair. Item #012959
