Scarce, notwithstanding stated third edition, with only copies discovered on OCLC First Search at the LOC, Toronto, and Crystal Bridges Museum. (Given the fragility of the parts and the likely heavy use of the "toy book", and its ephemeral nature to boot, it is easy to conceive of almost all copies being destroyed eventually.) N.d., circa mid-19th century. Folio, 33.5 by 26 cm. With four color litho plates, plus 50 separate color floral pieces which are to be inserted into slots in the plates. The plates depict a vase, a bowl, a ribbon, and another large bowl, and the idea is to allow the child to play with creating different flower arrangements, in the process familiarizing himself with the flower species. The flowers are each numbered, and there is an oblong four page key, rendered in German, French and English. (This key is 21 by 27.5 cm.) For each flower is also a maxim or a short two or three line verse of sentiment associated with that flower. Heavy soiling on the cover. Text pages heavily foxed. Moderate soiling on the plates. Original ribbon ties partially intact but unusable. Most importantly, though, is that all flower pieces are present and well-preserved, so the "paper toy" is as usable as it ever was.
