Paris: Guérin Müller & Co, c. 1865. 8ff., printed one side only, with a pop-up image folded over the text. Each pop-up consists of three layers: a background, a middle ground with the characters of the particular scene, and the foreground with small landscape elements at ground level. A turquoise ribbon connects the layers and extends long enough for the reader to pull the pop-up into an upright position. This is the first French edition of the second title in the New Scenic Series produced by Dean & Sons; other titles in this series using this ribbon-pull style of pop-up include Aladdin, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood.
Small quarto. All images intact, with all eight ribbons still of original length and unrestored. Original cloth-backed color printed boards show some rubbing and light wear, else fine and bright. Item #31504
