(Pop-Ups and Moveables) . There Was An Old Woman. 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. There Was An Old Woman offers a four-stanza version of "There Was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe" (still containing the "whipping" line) illustrated with a pop-up of children erupting from every window and doorway of the shoe. Fine condition.
