Peeps into Fairyland 1895 Ernest Nister Pop-Up Book

Peeps into Fairyland

A Panorama Picture Book of Fairy Stories

By F.E. Weatherly / E. Nesbit / M.A. Hoyer

Ernest Nister
1895 (1st Edition)

Approx Size: 14 x 10.75 inches (35 x 27.5 cms)

Hardback. [28] printed pages

Illustrated paper covered boards with blue cloth spine. Boards are very marked and have wear to corners, slight wear to head/foot of spine. Front and rear free endpapers are missing with webbing visible but binding is secure with all pages attached. Name in ink to front endpaper. Marking to text throughout the book. One inch tear to outside margin of title page. Naughty Noel pop-up is torn but complete (foreground section is detached). Fairy Fir-Cones pop-up is badly damaged - torn into several pieces with sections missing. The Fly-away Flock is severely damaged - pop-up section is competely missing with only the hinges and background remaining. Jack and the Beanstalk pop-up is mostly working, one hinge is broken and right hand edge has come unglued, the giant is detached and appears to have some loss. The Blue Bird pop-up is mostly working, one hinge is broken, the other is torn, one fairy is detached and has slight loss. The Babes in the Woods pop-up is working, hinges are attached, right hand fold is torn along most its length, slight tear to one fairy but appears that everything is present and correct. Overall Condition is Fair

Considered to be one of Ernest Nister's greatest productions, this beautifully illustrated work is sadly in a rather sorry state. Importantly though, this example has not suffered any amateur 'repairs' and has not been attacked with glue or sellotape.
