    Description

    L.L. Weedon. The Land of Long Ago: A Visit to Fairyland with Humpty Dumpty. London: Ernest Nister Publisher, [n.d., circa 1890s].

    First edition. Oblong Quarto. 25 pages with six full-page Victorian chromolithographic pop-ups.

    Pop-up illustrations include Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Puss in Boots, There Was an Old Woman Who Lived In a Shoe and Beauty and the Beast. In addition, there are sepia line illustrations on all 21 pages of text. Original illustrated glazed boards show heavy wear along all edges and corners, as does the buckram spine, although the cover artwork is in unusually good condition, with bright sharp colors. Inexpert reinforcement of interior pages at hinge. Leaves show moderate soiling and wear around edges, although all pop-ups are immaculate and undamaged. Rare and enchanting! From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
