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. Old King Cole offers a lengthy version of the nursery rhyme illustrated with a pop-up of the fiddler performing for the king. Fine condition.
