Grande Chasse.

Paris: Nouvelle Librairie de la Jeunesse, (c. 1900). Quarto panorama of four chromolithographed pop-up scenes. They carry the reader through an exotic hunt, in which cowboys and local turbaned attendants pursue and slay lions and tigers, and eventually overcome an ambush by native tribespeople. The book's three-dimensional structure adds to the dynamism of its gunfights, horseback rides, and huge landscapes. Bound in red cloth, minimally repaired, with general rubbing to exterior. Interior bright and fully functional, with all glued pieces attached and just one extremity missing. A remarkable, expansive, and rare example of pop-ups. Near fine. Item #29983

Price: $7,500.00
