Wettrennen in Kamerun

Esslingen, J. T. Schreiber - 1890

Schreiber Panorama with 4 pop-ups

Extremely rare Schreiber movable book

The only early movable we have seen with such a theme - This book includes numerous images of stereotypically illustrated natives, which are distasteful to modern readers, but of considerable historical interest. These show, in particular, western clothing being misunderstood and misused in a variety of ways (eg coats worn back to front).

Excellent condition, all original except for the tigers tail and the hippo, which are extremely well-done replacements.


The illustrator, Gottfried Sieben, was a pupil of the Royal Academy of Vienna and the cartoonist for the satirical weekly Der Floh, and also for the Wiener Caricaturen. The book was published in 1890 (as listed in Hinrichs' Funfjahriger Katalog der im Deutschen Buchhandel...II Teil Sachregister. (1892) pp.21.)
