Peepshow book. Dean's New Peep Show Magic Picture Book, showing wonderful & lifelike effects of real distance & space, Book I ... [cover-title], London: Dean & Son, [c.1861], four pages of text about a famous London landmark to the lower half of each recto, with a related hand-coloured wood-engraved peepshow mounted above, each peepshow consisting of a printed paper front-face (approx. 13 x 15cm), four cut-out panels, and a back-scene, all attached by accordion folds (generally poorly folded), the peepshow back-scenes printed directly onto the page, Westminster Abbey with tear to one side of front-face, a few peepshow panels creased with scarce minor edge-fraying, letterpress spotted with some edge-fraying, printed endpapers with publisher's advertisements, contents loose in original cloth-backed printed boards, rubbed and dust-soiled, with a little wear to extremities and some marks, front cover with crease to lower outer corner, slim large 8vo (Qty: 1) Gestetner Collection 273 (see also 272).
