1st Edition Thus. Hardcover. 4to  11" - 13" tall.

First edition of this pop-up version in English of the Dutch bestseller, Gnomes, with six double-page moveables featuring a gnome on a swing, a gnome on a treadmill, a pop-up deer (with a gnome, obviously), and much more. Based on the wildly popular book, Gnomes, created as a field guide to the world of gnomes by two Dutch authors, The Pop-Up Book of Gnomes increases the fun with six double-page moveables, often with more than one operating mechanism per page. Book very nearly fine, with all moveables fully functionable and just a tiny spot or two of faint soiling. A beautiful--and fully functional--copy.
