Dean & Son Home Pantomime Toy Books with Five Set Scenes & Nine Trick Changes: Whittington and His Cat

London, Dean & Sons 160A Fleet Street Circa 1879

9 13/16 × 7 5/16 in. (25 × 18.5 cm)

These books had paper soft covers which caused very few to survive. We can find only one other copy from this series - it's in the Met Museum.

Illustrated with 26 pages, varying in size, of chromo-lithographed illustrations, makes a little book within a book

Condition: Complete without missing pieces. Still well bound, all original with no repairs. Some wear to soft covers - see photos.
All in all, amazing condition for this rare soft cover Dean.
