Antique Working Pop Ups
Whitman Publishing, 1935. FIRST EDITION, first printing. Exceedingly scarce "Magic Action Book" with two apparently complete pop ups. Paper covered boards rubbed at tips and spine ends. Pop ups at beginning and end (middle pop up missing without a trace.) 20 text pages. Two pop-ups present and in working order, one has a small tear affecting mechanics minimally. Leaf containing pages 11-18 separated from text-block, 3" tear to top of page 24. Exceedingly rare pop-up, bear cross-collectible book. Obviously, any child oriented book which manages to keep the ordinarily delicate pop up pages in working order for more than three-quarters of a century is quite remarkable.
