A Visit to the Country; Dean's Surprise Model Series No 4.

£99.99

Product description

This is a classic childrens' book from the late nineteenth century and is a very early example of paper engineering. The pages each spring to life as hidden threads pull them into three dimensions. The book takes the form of a letter from Ethel who visits family in the countryside with Leonard and Marjorie.

This copy needs restoration as many of the parts are detached from the threads and some are torn. The book appears to be complete but may have some parts missing. There is some fading and browning. The price does reflect the condition of the book an this would make a fascinating and worthwhile project to get fully working.
