(POP-UPS.) GIRAUD, S. Louis, ed.
Bookano Stories: with pictures that spring up in model form.
First Edition, First Impression. The British Bookano series (the name was a play on the popular Meccano modelling set) are the first truly “automatic” pop-up books. S. Louis Giraud produced 16 annuals in the series from 1929 to 1949; this is the “Pot-Pourri Edition”, with that title on the spine.
