Moveable. Moveable Shadows, by W. Newman (of "Punch"), London: Dean & Son, [1857], pictorial title, 8 tinted lithographed plates, each with a moveable character operated by a tab (all working), when the figure is moved a comical shadow is revealed, tissue guards, light spotting, a few minor marks, some tabs fully or partly replaced, 2 plates with small repair to tab slot (one with associated pale stain), lower portion of Punch's cane strengthened, hinges cracked, original pictorial boards, somewhat worn and marked, spine re-covered in paper (partly obscuring letter M on front cover), 8vo (Qty: 1) Gumuchian 6178; Osborne p.419. A rare moveable. Each figure is designed so that its shadow illustrates the character of the person portrayed: for example 'A Conceited Ass' portraying a pompous man reveals his shadow as a donkey standing on its hind legs.
