New York: Domesday Press, distributed by J. L. Schilling Co., (1945); full coloured boards fold out to a ten foot strip; each page is 10"xapprox 8.75"; the covers are oblong and fold around the inner pages, which are diecut to surround the animal pictures on the top edge; pages connected by blue muslin tape, with blue reinforced "spine"; except for the covers, 22 pictures are different front and back. Novelty panorama.
The design of this panorama allows for many different pictures: bees, a goose, a turtle, swans, workhorses, a squirrel, a guinea hen, and pigeons as well as the usual characters. The artwork is typical of this sort of book from the 40's, with detailed animals and rather plain backgrounds, but with a horse drawn buckrake and haywagon.
CONDITION: Good; edges of tape on spine quite badly rubbed, reglued tape on one board shows wrinkles, thus grade, otherwise clean and unmarked. Item #17520
