Descripción Atlantic Book & Art Corporation, New York. Hard Cover. Estado de conservación: Fair. Seven scenes with slots for cardboard figures. 27 figures included. Front two boards are detached. Spine cloth is present but detached at front hinge. Some bowing to the boards. No moisture damage. Some tanning and wear to the edges. The figures are in a plastic bag. A few may be missing the tab to insert into book or another part. 20 of the 27 figures are not damages. The other seven may have a tab missing or a crease in an elephants trunk. Only a couple have major pieces missing like an arm. This appears to be from the 20's. With a bit of restoration this is a very nice example of how kids might have entertained themselves in the day.
