About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for TOUCH AND GO A Book of Changing Pictures by Weatherly, Fred.

Description:

This is an original first printing of an Ernest Nister book with movable parts. There is no date in the book but it is generally acknowledged to have bene printed around 1890. In this case, there is a charming gift inscription on the patterned front end page that is dated 1894. The book is folio size (13" x 10") and unpaginated. There are a front end page, a title page, three pages of verse with black & white illustrations, eight chromolithograph transformations with verse and black & white illustrations on the back side. The back patterned end page is part of the encasing for the last transformation. The transformation pictures are enclosed between two pages and the pulling of a tab at the bottom of the page changes one illustration into another. The transformations all work but a few have tabs that have broken and are a little shorter than they should be. There are also rips to the ends of some pages, mostly where someone reached in to pull a tab. The books major flaw is loosened binding. The first two pages and the last leaf containing the last transformation have completely detached. However, the book is complete and has all movable parts working. It also is exceptionally clean with no foxing and very little smudging. Remarkable for any children's book of this age but especially for one with moving parts. Bookseller Inventory # 000284
