POP-UP EDITION OF PUSS IN BOOTS: THE FIRST AMERICAN SERIES OF POP-UP BOOKS

CLOUD, C. Carey, and LENTZ, Harold B. Puss in Boots. New York: Blue Ribbon, (1934). Quarto, staple-bound as issued, original pictorial paper boards. $800.

First edition of this illustrated, pop-up version of a Perrault classic, with eight black-and-white illustrations and three engaging double-page color pop-ups by C. Carey Cloud and Harold B. Lentz.

Blue Ribbon was the first publisher to market its books using the term "pop-up." As Blue Ribbon explains for the first time, "these are three-dimensional illustrations that rise out of the book when it is opened and vanish when it is closed." They and paper-engineer Harold Lentz teamed up in the 1930s to produce a successful series of imaginative pop-ups. These are the first modern pop-up books produced in America, borrowed from a series of British pop-ups by Brown and Giraud in the 1930s under the imprint Bookano. Montanaro, 254.

Expert paper repair to first pop-up with other pop-ups lovely and fine, slight foxing and finger smudging to interior, text block and spine expertly repaired. An extremely good copy.
