Antique Movable Book Nister - Wild Animal Stories

Alternative Views:

Wild Animal Stories: A Panorama Picture Book. London: E. Nister; New York: Dutton, [1897]

6 large chromolithograph pop-ups in beautiful condition

All 6 pop-ups are excellent - a small section of the border was replaced in one of the pop-ups (see photo). Tabs that pull up scenes are all original and were reinforced to make each scene pop-up perfectly. Boards have some age wear. Binding is very good with all pages still attached.

Large Book - 10¾ x 14 inches

Collector's Corner:

Wild Animal Stories was a "panorama book of a kind which had been seen before but this one required no work on the reader's part, for the three layers of the picture were linked to the facing page by a tab which automatically pulled them into perspective as the child opened the book. . . . The text was by one of the most popular and prolific writers of boys' books of the time, George Manvill Fenn (1831-1909)." --Peter Haining, Movable Books
