Collector’s Corner:
Below is a list of the English titles in Father Tuck's Mechanical Series. International titles were branded as such:

French: Serie Mecanique Collection De L'oncle Tuck

Italian: These were not branded Tuck (see photos) - Published by Ditta Giovanni Gussoni Milano
Besides the one listed here on vintagepopbooks.com, no other copies of Italian Tuck movables can be located online or in Italian and international libraries. The publisher Giovanni Gussoni ceased operations in 1907; the movable picture books were probably one of his last publishing products (cf. Caccia, Editori a Milano, p. 165). Rosa Massara De Capitani (1869-1925) appears on the cover of the Italian copies - probably as a Milanese dialect poet and translator.

Dutch: Again, no mention of Tuck. Prentenboek Met Beweegbare Platen. Published by Rotterdam., D. Bolle

Germany: We have not seen a German Tuck "Mechanical Series" but have seen other Tuck movables published by J.F. Schreiber
