PENDRAGON CASTLE POP-UP BOOK
(MOSELEY, Keith, paper engineer) SEYMOUR, Peter. Pendragon Castle. (New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1982). Octavo, original glazed pictorial paper boards. $250.
First edition of this charming pop-up book featuring four standing views of Pendragon Castle.
Prolific paper engineer Keith Moseley presents four ingenious pop-up interior and exterior views of the 12th-century Cumbrian fortress, named for the legendary father of King Arthur but more famous as the seat of Sir Hugh de Morville, Lord of Westmorland–one of Thomas Beckett's four killers. Peter Seymour's brief text, of course, examines more child-friendly matters, from the functions of the castle's various rooms to life as a squire or lady-in-waiting. Montanaro, 220.
All pop-ups intact and functional. Fine condition.
