    A Delightful Meggendorfer in Wonderful Condition

    [Moveable Books]. Lothar Meggendorfer. Prinz Liliput. Ein lustiges Ziehbilderbuch. Stuttgart: J. F. Schreiber in Esslingen, [n.d., circa 1900]. Quarto. With title page in color plus seven color plates, six of which contain moveable parts operated by thumb-tabs along the bottom edge. Publisher's delightfully-illustrated pictorial boards. Minor wear and dust-soiling to boards. Gift inscription to front pastedown, with protective tissue taped at one corner to the pastedown. Minor dust-soiling to most leaves, as usual. Small tape repair and tape backing to one moveable (the strawberry tree). All moveables functional, with one example a little stubborn, and one example with the fore-edge opened. Overall, a wonderful copy in very good condition, much better than usually seen.
