A very old and beautiful book

Post by Daniel » Fri Sep 21, 2018 12:55 pm

With great luck, I have just acquired for a modest price, a luxurious large format book - panorama in relief - published by Capendu, in Paris, in the years 1885/1890.
Entirely printed in typography for the texts and in Chromolithography for the images the copy of this "Grand Théatre Féerique" is in perfect condition despite its 130 years! ... It misses only a small part of the sliding curtain of the cover.
This book is composed of 4 scenes of 4 shots. Each scene featuring a zipper animation, which still works ...
In short, you will understand, it is now the jewel of my collection and I can not resist to make you enjoy it.
If you have information on this beautiful object, do not hesitate to let me know.
Thank you.
Daniel
