Lebende Thierbilder.
Munchen: Braun & Schneider, n.d. (ca.1885).
¥561,000 (税込み) Folio. Neunte Auflage (ninth edition). Cloth backed pictorial boards. Near fine copy, slightly soiled, metal clips rusting, near the tabs of some pages slightly torn. Illustrated with 8 hand-colored plates, each with hinged moveable parts operated by tabs as follows; a dog wagging his tail and moving his eyes and tongue; chicken, geese, and duck feeding in the water; a horse eating hay while birds play on the roof; a flock of sheep all moving at once; four cows eating from a trough; a goat eating with a cat licking and two bunnies moving; a deer feeding while a squirrel feeds in a tree; an owl moving in a tree. This is Meggendorfer at his best with each moveable page featuring many parts operating simultaneously.
