Allerlei, bewegliche Bilder für artige Kinder; Of Every Kind, Mobile Pictures for Good Children [Movable Book]

No publication information given, ca. 1860s. Cloth-backed, hand-colored pictorial boards with title printed in German, Russian, English, French, Spanish, and Italian. Six hand-colored plates with movable features controlled by paper tabs extending from the bottom of the page. Two plates lacking the tabs, the others not perfectly operational, one plate appears to lack a movable piece. The illustrations include partygoers playing musical instruments; children swinging on a large scale; a baby being wheeled in a pram; children playing pirates, and a man sharpening an axe on a grinding wheel as two children look on. (The sixth is a man probably meant to be hoisting something up with a rope, but this is the one for which a part or parts are lacking and the exact subject is unclear). We find no record of this title in OCLC but there is one copy of a book called "Ernst & Scherz, Bwegliche Bilder für artige Kinder," which also has titles in six languages and six plates with movable features, likely by the same publisher, identified in OCLC (though not, apparently, in the book itself) as G. Löwensohn of Fürth. Löwensohn did print many movable books, but whether this is one of them we cannot say with certainty.
