Collector's Corner:

Each little book in this series consists of the cover, then 1 page of detailed assembly instructions, "How to Make Each Figure Stand Separately and Form Innumerable Tableaux."Next are 4 story text pages, then 5 chromolithographed panels of figures folded accordion style and opening to 15”. Finally there is a page of stands that the child can mount their toys on after punching them out. These little books were published without a conventional back cover – The plain gray stands on the last leaf serves as the book's lower wrapper.

These little books were first issued by Raphael Tuck & Sons between 1907 and 1910, as part of Father Tuck’s “Panorama” Series. They are shown sold separately as well as all together in a blue and red box entitled " Father Tuck's Picture Land Panoramas" in a 1932 Raphael Tuck catalog.
