Mon Oncle Gaspard. Album a Transformations.

Paris: Nouvelle Librairie de la Jeunesse, (1890). Small quarto. (14)pp., including paste-down endpapers. A stencil-colored cut-figure book, with each page cut into three sections so that one can make numerous combinations of the head, body, and legs of "Mon Oncle Gaspard." The Gaspards range in profession and character, from a top-hat-wearing musician and a book-reading academic, to a pipe-smoking cat fancier and a mustachioed gentleman who seems unaware of the proper way to hold an infant. Bound in paper over boards with a cloth spine, front cover illustrated with a toy-bearing Gaspard. Some soiling, else a fine copy of this rare item. Item #26887

Price: $750.00
