(Movable Book)

Little Red Riding Hood.

Philadelphia: B. Wilmsen, (c. 1880). Octavo. (10)pp. "Triumph Edition." Each spread shows a two-page chromolithograph—for a total of five—embellished by one or more tissue fans. The classic fairytale thus gains an unusual liveliness, with roofs, treetops, and bedcovers extending beyond the page in abstract arcs of color. Bound in chromolithograph wrappers, showing some soiling and mild edgewear. Superficial cracking along stapled joint, with cellotape at tail, plus one fan reglued. Very good. Item #31169
