About This Item

Wood-engraved panorama, [287 x 880 mm folding down to 150 x 115], crudely hand-coloured in sweeps and dabs; original printed yellow wrappers incorporating a front cover a design of the title with City arms and City insignia.

Rare survival of this charming chapbook panorama for children, representing The Lord Mayor's procession in two strips, one above the other, the lower strip being the first part of the procession, the upper strip the continuation of it.

On the reverse of the front cover appear lists of 'Boy's Own Panoramas', 'Clarke's Model Theatres', and 'Little Toymakers.' The sixteen 'Boy's Own Moving Panoramas' and descriptions listed include the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race, and the Epsom Races and 'The Little Toymaker' with Magic Donkeys', 'Magic Sailor, and Bonny Fishwife' and the dubiously title 'Magic Nigger, and how to make it.'. On the inside of the back cover is an advertisement for 'Holloway's Ointment', guaranteed remedy for 'Bad Legs, Bad Breasts, Ulcers, Abscesses, Wounds, and Sores of all Kinds.' and on the back cover a list of 'Clarke's Galanty Shows, Ready for Acting.'

Not in OCLC.
