The pop-up scenes are a day at the zoo, farmyard friends, dog's academy and on the beach. In spite of the condition, the chromolithographs are still charming and attractive, esp. the dog's academy. Ernest Nister & Son was one of two major firms in Germany who produced movable books. They hired English writers and often used familiar English scenes. These books were extremely popular and well loved, resulting in very few titles surviving intact. Sold as is. Scarce.
