The Model Menagerie - A Novel Picture Book of Wild Animals, 1895

Published: Ernest Nister & E. P. Dutton & Co., London & New York

Date: 1895

With Natural History Stories. A beautiful pop-up book with pictorial covers over cloth spine, decorative endpapers, black & white illustrations and six colour pop-up pages. Overall in good condition, all in working order but with a little care necessary when handled. Rubbing to the boards, loss to the paper at the top corner of rear board and scuffing to the edges and corners as seen in photos. Rubbing and scuffing to the tips and edges of the spine that has been repaired and glued back in place. Internally clean, with age toning to the pages and some dusting to the pop-ups, the boards are still firm but both have been repaired at some point, see photos, and webbing showing between some pages but all still held together. One page with 1" closed edge tear and all pop-ups working well apart from the first one that is a little twisted when opened. Previous owner's inscription to ffep. With all that mentioned, as one must when selling something online, this is still a lovely copy that has survived the test of its more than 120 years. Unpaged.
