Meggendorfer, Lothar
Meggendorfer, Lothar] Neue Thierbilder. Ein Ziehbilderbuch (New Animal Pictures. A Color Picture Book
Braun und Schneider, Munich, 1890. 7th edition (7. Auflage). Tall quarto. Original color pictorial paper covered boards, brown cloth spine. Eight original moveable scenes in extremely well preserved working order by Lothar Meggendorfer, the master of cleverly designed mechanical moveable scenes, featuring metal hinges that control key dynamic changes of scenes. Each full-page color scene is composed of two pages which are joined at the outside edge, and with the mechanical gears housed in between. The scenes are moved by pulling down on the tabs at the bottom. Scenes are: 1) two storks feeding at a pond; 2) a burrow kicking a dog; 3) chickens feeding through a fence; 4) a goat painting a picture; 5) a dragonfly about to be consumed by a large fish; 6) a fox stalking two chickens; 7) two bulls in a pasture; 8) two blackbirds, feeding their young. Almost everything is original, with a few newer tabs. Corners bumped, cloth on spine wrinkled, some minor strengthening to joints, but on the whole, an extremely well-preserved example of a very scarce and sought-after Meggendorfer title.
