20312 The Land of Long Ago by Weedon, pub. by Nister.

The Land of Long Ago, a Visit to Fairyland.

Humpty Dumpty escorts two children to the other side of a high brick wall at the bottom of the garden and into fairyland, where nursery rhyme and story characters await. Beautiful scenes can be let down to show Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, The Sleeping Beauty, Puss in Boots, There Was an Old Woman, and Beauty and the Beast. (Hunt p. 337) The pop-up mechanisms are designed so that young children can operate them.

Little Learner's A.B.C.

Very deep chromolithos with heavy glazing intact and fine drawings, made possible by a finer quality of linen than was used later, although the book is not trimmed on the straight of the goods. The precise drawings give good examples of children's clothing of the time, a change from the woodcuts of the publisher's 1884 ABC. Q shows a portrait of an older Queen Victoria with the baby on her lap. Uncommon, in Worldcat. Note: This Book Has Been Sold.
