About This Item
This is a very good copy of a truly rare item. There is general soil from use; several tabs have been strengthened or replaced, but all of the moveable scenes are operative. Montanaro, p. 69.
The dating of this item is problematic, but likely about 1859. Montanaro suggests a date of 1860, but the Cotsen copy in the Diana Rexford Tillson collection has an inscription dated March, 1859. The rear board has the code 4000--3,59 which indicates a publication date of March, 1859. Dean and Son was the first publisher to produce movable books on a large scale. In the late 1850's, the firm can be credited with inventing another first: the use of a mechanism that moved or was animated by pulling a tab.
