Old Mother Hubbard. Dean's Moveable Books.

London: Dean & Son, (n.d.). Small quarto. 8ff., printed one side only. Eight pages with full hand-colored images—sometimes more than one to a page—all of which bear movable features. These are manipulated through paper tabs toward the bottom of the illustration. Pulling a tab back and forth causes Mother Hubbard's hands to move, and her dog to nod his head, bow, kick up his legs, or spin wool. The particular craftsmanship of this volume lies in the multiple movables per single tab. The book features advertisements for other Dean & Son works as endpapers. All illustrations and tabs intact. Bound in blue cloth-backed pictorial paper over boards. Rubbing to exterior and bumps to corners, with scant soiling to interior, else near fine. Item #28095
