2 Card-Houses
Box Very Good 
N.d., circa late 1800s. With 96 pictorial (chromolithographic) cards, and 38 blank cards. An folded instruction sheet as well as instructions pasted onto the underside of the box lid. Pictorial cards are interlocking so that they can be arranged to build various structures, and hence the name of the game, "Card-Houses". The game is in essence a precursor of Lego blocks. Of equal interest is the bright chromolithographic imagery of cats, children, roosters, other animals. The cards are each 4 by 2.5 inches, and they are clean and appropriately stiff. The box housing the cards has had loss to the paper that is pasted onto the boards and there is obvious repair to the sides which had at one point become detached but the box is presently completely functional and it is a small miracle that it has survived at all. The instruction sheet is now backed by a piece of linen paper -- one can see the closed tears that inevitably occurred at the folds of the otherwise brittle sheet.

3 Chromolithographic Outer Walls of a Go Fishing Game
NA Very Good 
N.d., circa 1890. The boards of the four linked walls collapse to lay flat. The object of the game was to attempt to fish out small fish from within the well. None of these fish but one, nor the rods used, are now present, but the outer panels remain highly decorative with their illustration of fish, frogs, a kingfisher, lily pads and shore grasses. The four sides are in fact identical. The sides are oblong, each being 31.5 by 34 cm.

Floral Seasons.  A Calendar for 1899.
4 Floral Seasons. A Calendar for 1899.
London and New York Ernest Nister and E.P. Dutton, respectively 1898 First Edition Wraps, with original box Fine 
Highly colorful chromolithograpically illustrated calendar in pristine condition. The original box, a highly unusual survivor for this kind of thing, measures 25.5 by 16.5 cm, oblong, and this is essentially the outer dimensions of this "shaped" booklet. The shaping is the delicate outline of a wreath, if you will, of roses. Six card stock pages, each presenting two months and decorated with flowers, and these are bound together with ribbon. The box has a few tears on the lower sides.

Japanese Lacquer Album and Music Box Housing a Collection of Liebig Cards
8 Japanese Lacquer Album and Music Box Housing a Collection of Liebig Cards
Lacquer Very Good Plus 
A highly unusual album with a splendid collection of Liebig cards. N.d. The cards were produced during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, and the lacquer album itself is from the mid-twentieth century -- it could be from the twenties to the fifties -- but since it is probably that the collection of Liebig cards dates to the earlier part of that range, the album itself is surely from the earlier part of that range. 60 leaves, containing 180 Liebig chromolithographic cards, six per leaf, plus a larger chromo, or overlay of a few chromos, on first card leaf, featuring a Caucasion woman wearing a kimono and holding a Japanese umbrella. The album has dimensions of 28 by 40 cm oblong, by 6 cm tall (leg to top of front cover). After being wound on the bottom, the music plays when the cover is opened. Liebig is a company that has produced extract of meat products from the 1860s to the present day. It early on took to marketing through issuing decorative chromolithographic cards, with one card per purchase, and typically six cards forming a set built around a theme, which was often educational in some manner. The cards became a highly popular collectible, and arguably, the Liebig name became as well known for its cards as it was for its actual products. The lacquer, as the norm, has striated cracks, and there are a few minor chips. Within, the second leaf has remnants of paste and paper where there was once cards pasted -- the collector must have decided it was not a good idea then to have cards on the versos.

9 Le Livre d'images parlantes pour amuser les chers bebes. Avec des voix caracteristiques d'enfants et d'animaux
Paris K-B (?) Cloth Very Good 
The French version of "The Speaking Book", a toy book with sound, that is still in full working order! .N.d., circa late 1890s. 32 by 23.5 cm, and 5.5 cm thick. Title page followed by eight leaves, all on thick card stock, with chromolithographic plate on verso, facing verse describing the animal or people and their typical sound. With nine ivory tassels or pulls with strings attached, which when pulled out from the foreedge or side of the box, produce various sounds: a cock crowling, birds chirping, a donkey bray, a bleat, a moo, a coo, etc. Described by Peter Haining as "The piece de resistance of any collection of movables, or toy-books for that matter". See Haining "Movable Books", New English Library, 1979, p. 136. Also Gumachian 3839, which suggest a possible earlier dating of "vers 1885". The book was produced in Nuremberg by an unknown firm, according to Haining, and as the title page discloses, translated versions were made available in Spanish, English, and as this copy, in French. The German version, though, was published by Theodore Brand Verlag, which issued at least nineteen editions between the 1880s and the 1930s. So while one can not say that the book is rare, to find it in complete working order can be fairly described as rare, or at least, unusual. The sharp chromolithography of the cover and eight other illustrations is all the obvious earmarks of German and specifically Bavarian printing. Gilt edges. Rubbing and wear to the cloth. The front cover is slightly bowed. The card leaves have a slight dip in the middle. Moderate soiling, with ink marks on the final text page. Foreedge with scattered rubbing, or gilt loss.

11 Metamorphic Decagon Transforming a Witch into a Fairy
Paris and/or New Orleans Lithographer F. Appel NA Near Fine 
N.d., late 19th century. 15 cm across, closed. Folds peel away, with each such action transforming the image. Clearly one is meant to pull two pieces symmetrically positioned in tandem, although the order intended, if one was in fact intended, is not clear. Regardless, it is a fun and unusual item. It is believed that this paper novelty was issued in conjunction with Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans, perhaps as a party favor at a ball or as a street souvenir being hawked to parade onlookers, in the latter part of the nineteenth century, while F. Appel is known to have been a Parisian lithographer. It can be assumed that this is a scarce item, although this researcher is nonplused in the peeling away of more definite information on the item. Light wear.

14 Pretty Farm Pictures. A Big Book for the Little Ones.
London and New York Ernest Nister and E. P. Dutton & Co. First Edition Presumed Boards attached by cloth spine Very Good 
N.d., circa 1890. With 19 large chromolithographs, including title, of animals and some children in bucolic settings, all on heavy card which gives the book real heft and durability. The size, 11 by 12 inches each, and prettiness of the illustrations sets this juvenile farm animal compilation from the common fare of the day, and surely the endearing cuteness of the images has led many a time to this book being broken for the purpose of framing the prints. Some soiling of the covers. The red cloth used on the spine has some fraying and weakening. Minor soiling of some margins within, but most of this could be considered age toning. one plate, "Milking Time", ha paper loss in right margin, not affecting or coming close to the image.

18 Talismanic Flowers
1880 Half Morocco Very Good 
With 14 pages of chromolithographic die-cuts. Twelve of these pages are of flowers representing each of the months, the thirteenth is of an elaborate bouquet, and the final leaf is an assortment of nine die-cuts of flowers and children such as one might find in a more common Victorian album. Each of the monthly floral die-cut leaves is accompanied by poetry entitled "The Legend of" whatever the particular flower is as well as a four-line stanza dedicated to the same month. The thirteenth leaf comes with a long poem called "Nature' Cathedral". Separate from all this are nine leaves of newspaper clippings and poetry. This latter part was done in the 1930s and 40s and thus a good half-century after the principal part of the album. We can date the die-cut portion to 1880, if not a little earlier, by an inscription dated 1880 on the FFEP. This section is an outstanding example of its genre -- the compiler had an overarching conception which was executed neatly and elegantly. The morocco is heavily rubbed, with a section on the spine pierced, revealing the underlying signature gatherings. The interior is generally clean, with some yellowing from the glue used and ordinary age toning. 11 by 9".
