    Hope Myrroun. Round About Pictures for all Little Folk, With Verses by Hope Myrroun and Pen and Ink Illustrations by T. Cromwell Lawrence. London: Ernest Nister, [n.d., circa 1899].

    Quarto. 15 pages with six full-color mechanical images and numerous black and white illustrations throughout.

    Unusual children's book with pictures on revolving discs; by turning a tab another illustration beneath is revealed. These "dissolving" picture books were quite popular at the turn of the Century, although more so for the mechanical images than for the poems that fill each page. Buckram spine with fully illustrated paper front cover showing moderate wear and soiling; verso cover is blank and also shows wear and soiling. Interior pages are soiled and several of the revolving images have small tears and do not turn easily. A wonderful antique children's book! From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
