Fables de La Fontaine Animees.

Paris: Capendu, A., (c. 1900). Oblong octavo. (12)pp. Illustrated with six movable color images.

The illustrations move through tabs at the bottom of each page, which twist the brass rivets attached to the limbs of the various anthropomorphic animals. Bound in red cloth with textured blue cloth boards. Upper cover shows a scene with the lion as king looking over his animal court. Edges and corners worn, some soiling to pages, else a near fine copy with all movable elements securely functional. Unrecorded in OCLC. Item #28107
