NISTER, Ernest, publisher
Transformation Pictures and Comical Fixtures
Ernest Nister / E. P. Dutton & Co, 1890. 8vo (19 x 17 cm). [16] pages, including 6 chromolithograph movable plates with tabs.Original cloth-backed pictorial boards. Restoration to spine and joints, some foxing, but all movables complete and in fine working condition. These are quite fragile volumes due to the young handles handling them. The present has survived well, in above-average condition. A fine example of Nister's charming transformation books, which delighted children of the Victorian era. A Christmas 1895 gift inscription on the front free endpaper helps suggest a publication date for this undated book.
Bookseller: hudsonriverbooks [Ardsley, New York, United States]
