According to the website Tuck Empermia – there were 3 titles in this set
Surprises From Fairyland, PLEASANT SUPRISES FOR PETS, and TA RA RA BOOM DE AY
They were numbered 832, 833, and 834

This title was one of 3 advertising booklets produced by Raphael Tuck as a premium giveaway for the Sprague Warner & Company Chicago which was founded during the Civil War. The promotional stamp states: “These books given with AAAA Coffee and One Pound Can of Unrivaled Baking Powder.”

Quite rare. This item should be of interest to Sprague Warner collectors as well as movable book collectors.
Later similar booklets given away by Sprague Warner were not movable (flap).
As far as we can tell, these were the first 3 booklets produced by Raphael Tuck for Sprague Warner and the only movable ones.

Note: we found ads for AAAA coffee and Unrivaled Baking Powder in the November 30, 1895 Wisconsin State Journal
