DAS PUPPENHAUS [THE DOLLS HOUSE]

By MEGGENDORFER, LOTHAR

MEGGENDORFER, LOTHAR. MEGGENDORFER,LOTHAR. DAS PUPPENHAUS [THE DOLLS HOUSE]. Essingen & Munich: Schreiber, no date, circa 1911. Oblong 4to (10 1/4 x 8 1/2"), plastic in a window worn a few inconsequential creases and a few discreet minor repairs else near FINE AND BRIGHT IN ORIGINAL PUBLISHER'S BOARD SLIP CASE with printed label. This is a pop-up panorama that opens to form 6 scenes some of which need assembling by the child and are then reusable. There are 2 outside and 4 detailed interior rooms of a doll's house. As unfolded to its full length of four feet, people, furniture, and even fixtures pop-out and each of the scenes is rich in detail. There is even a piano with a bust of Beethoven on the top. See Haining (p. 127) who reproduces the French edition of the entire panorama called Maison de Poupee. Due to its popularity it was issued over the years with a few changes to reflect the times; for instance the gypsy cart is replaced here by a motorcar. It is rare to find any mechanical in such magnificent condition, let alone in the box. This is certainly one of the most elaborate and charming of the mechanicals issued by Meggendorfer.
