My First Jig-Puz Book

£14.99

Product description

An interesting book containing five jugsaw puzzles each of 48 pieces set into thick board sheets and faced with a short sgtory about the illustration. There is also a small black and white picture of the puzzle.

John Leng undated but probably mid 1930s. Boards show two children playing with gthe book. The binding is good but the boards have severe edge wear. There are to dedications, one on the reverse of the front cover and one on the rear cover. The black and white copies have been rather inexpertly coloured in. More to the point there is one piece missing from the lower edge of the first puzzle. The remaining four are intact. (The trick to prevent them falling out is to close the book and then open the front cover AND the page before the one you want i.e. open from the left. That way they don't fall out.)

A fun book, but it is ineveitable that ONE piece should be missing. (See the illustration of the Fox Trot puzzle). The third illustration shows appearance when the puzzle is removed.
