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.

The child is instructed to cut out each section, fold and then glue it to the full page illustration and then fold the background page so that when the page is opened, the child has made his own pop-up book! Illustrated in bright colors in typical turn of the century style. Includes a man catching a baseball, a boy scout catching a butterfly, a mule kicking a stertypical Black man and more. About the illustrator and the importance of this work, the following is an excerpt from The World Encyclopedia of Cartooning: "Baker, Alfred Zantzinger (1870-1933) [was] an American cartoonist born in Baltimore, Maryland_ . Baker pursued seriously art and was exhibited at age 23 in the National Academy_he joined the staff of Puck in 1898. As a cartoonist he did not confine his work to one outlet, and at the turn of the century Baker was appearing frequently in the pages of Puck, Judge, Life, Scribner's, Harper's, Century and St. Nicholas. His books include The Moving Picture Book (1911), The Moving Picture Glue Book (1912) and The Torn Book (1913). His innovations, such as die-cutting and 3-D drawings with glasses, are surpassed in the children's book genre only by those of the imaginative Peter Newell. Baker's work was among the freshest and cleverest of American cartooning at the turn of the century, and retains these characteristic even under modern scrutiny." Rare.
