London / NY: Nister / Dutton, (1894). Quarto. (10)ff. Contains eight chromolithographed transforming illustrations. Each is slatted so that, when one pulls the tab, the image dissolves to be replaced by another. Old Mother Hubbard changes to Jack and Jill; children building sandcastles changes to a mermaid. Bound in cloth-backed boards with a chromolithographed cover illustration. A neat gift inscription appears on the front flyleaf signed from Santa Claus and dated Dec. 24, 1894. A few repaired tears to page edges and frames, and repaired tear in one slat; first tab repaired with tape. Complete, with all pictures fine and in working order. Item #27316
