TWEE GOEDE VRIENDEN Prentenboek Met Beweegbare Platen

TWO GOOD FRIENDS Picture Book With Movable Plates

Rott., D. Bolle, (c. 1915).

10 pages - (6) text-pp. & 4 chromolithograph movable plates

6 X 20 cm

On the first movable page Lizzie holds a bowl of cookies whiling telling the surrounding pets No that the cookies were not baked for them. A gentle pull lifts her arm holding the bowl. The next page shows kittens happily at play while the colored page has a cow and 2 rabbits sharing the grass and turnips with the words that "There is enough for the three of us." The cow bends her head as a rabbit leans over to munch. The donkeys and ducks appear to be just fine but on the opposite page, despite the eager appeals of 3 geese, we are told that Jill will keep the sandwiches. She lifts the sandwich high as one goose reaches for it. In the final happy pages two cows peacefully nodding their heads watch Poes (a cat) drinking milk from a large bucket and the words, "What a Godsend says Poes." The final caring words conclude "...go to sleep my little doves."

This is a rare, well preserved desirable collectable book.
