DescriptionLothar Meggendorfer. Bilder aus dem Tierleben (Pictures from the Animal World). Ein verwandlungsbilderbuch mit verversen von Julius Beck. Esslingen, Germany: J. F. Schreiber, n.d. [ca. 1895].
Seventh through ninth edition. Quarto. 13 pages with six full-color slat-transformation images and numerous line drawings throughout.
Glossy full-color pictorial boards with minor edge rubbing but much nicer than usual; some minor wear and small tears repaired within but overall quite nice. A slightly different mechanism for Meggendorfer, who generally produced circular transformation images, but marvelous all the same. One of the nicest mechanical children's books we've seen. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
