A Single-Fold Pop-Up Nursery Rhyme

(Pop-Ups and Moveables) Mistress Mary. New York: J. S. Fub., circa 1938-53.

Card Covers. Square 8vo  8" to 9" tall.

Lovely pop-up interpretation of a popular nursery rhyme, with a bright and vivid 1930s pop-up illustration. Pop-up illustrator Geraldine Clyne, known for the Jolly Jump-Ups series, illustrated a series of single-fold booklets each containing an individual nursery rhyme and an elaborate pop-up. Mistress Mary offers the nursery rhyme "Mary, Mary Quite Contrary" illustrated with a pop-up of Mary watering her garden. Fragile activation edges of pop-up slightly worn, leading the pop-up to "pop" slightly less. Extremely good condition.
