Description
J. Vlieger - De Tooverlantaarn - 1897
Children's books, Illustrated - Quantity: 1 - Limited edition - Book

Another beautifully preserved publication from the collection of Boekenhuis Zwolle.

Cover of the Dutch edition of ‘The Magic Lantern’, ‘De Tooverlantaarn’, in which the gruesome story of Piet de Smeerpoets is told.
The book has eight pages with movable disks for ‘projecting’ changing images. Published in Amsterdam by J. Vlieger.
(Originally ‘The Magic Lantern - Struwwel Peter’, Naverteld door Rosa. Amsterdam H. Campagne & Zoon, 1897.)
Size: 33 × 26 cm.

This edition was printed without text; on the cover we read “Printed and made in Bavaria.” There was also the Dutch edition of ‘The Magic Lantern’: ‘De Tooverlantaarn’, (J. Vlieger) in which the story was told of the Dutch equivalent of Slovenly Peter, Piet de Smeerpoes. This Dutch edition has no text, as does the third English edition that was published around 1900. Copies of this edition are extremely rare, as are all of Warne's editions.
