Novelty children's book with actual fabric used for clothing on couple illustrated. N.d., circa 1865. 8vo. 26 by 19.5 cm. 40 pp. With four chromolithgraphic plates, each with separate figures of Rudolf and Susanna pasted down, and these figures wearing garments of actual fabrics, giving the imagery a dimensionality and texture. The couple are shown in childhood, later courtship and finally, marriage. The fabric cut-outs of silk, netting, linen and felt are impressively intricate, although there is an oddness to the result for sure. Color lithography by Emrik & Bingen. Recased in cloth, with original color lithographic cover and rear vignette preserved and pasted down. Neat tear (severing) in outstretched arm of Susanna in first pastedown. Bookseller Inventory #
