A very good example of this rare Meggendorfer book, an unfolding summertime scene including a seaside village, bucolic vistas, children shaking a pear tree and playing games, finishing with incoming summer showers. Lothar Meggendorfer was a prolific early innovator in the field of moving picture books & juvenalia.
Sixth edition; oblong folio (190 x 310 mm.); 6 double-page panels mounted onto 12 card sections, with the first & last forming the cover, joined into one continuous strip to form a panorama, the hand-coloured scene with rhyming couplets beneath, folded concertina style with cloth hinges, paper splitting along most hinges, cover hinges slightly splitting and ends a little worn, variable toning possibly from the glue, some spotting, front cover with hand-coloured pictorial paper label, minor edge wear but overall a very good.
