Collector's Corner:
Several variations of this pop-up exist. The first and rarest edition was
a double sheet, without the third fold-out page. It was sold with a special paper envelope . It was created for export for an English publisher in the1960's and designed to be used as an elaborate Christmas card. (Inquire if interested as we have the only first edition with original envelope that we have seen)

More variations followed with the last edition being published in 1991.

All books are returnable within 10 days of receipt if not delighted for any reason.
