    Theodore Roosevelt: George V. Sinclair, Roosevelt in the Jungle. (Akron: The Saalfield Publishing Company, n.d.), six pages of text, six color lithograph mechanical illustrations., folio (9.5" x 14.25"), illustrated board covers. This very rare children's book contains six full-color mechanical lithographs depicting Teddy's fictional African adventures and encounters with various wild animals. Various elements of each picture move when one pulls a tab at the bottom of the page. While each mechanical illustration still functions as designed, they have become fragile with age and, no doubt, the ardent attention of generations of children. As a result of this attention, the text block has become detached from the scuffed and worn boards (the rear board has an abraded area from tape removal), the front endpaper is lacking, there is a small area of damp stain at the top edge of each illustration, and the illustrations are slightly ragged around the pull tab. Otherwise, a rare title from Saalfield (a premier publisher of juvenile material for the first three quarters of the 20th century), printed in Bavaria.
