Humpty Dumpty Magical Changes, with Mother Goose Melodies.
Published 1879, New York by G.W. Carleton & Co. Printed by Donaldson Bros. (major printers of transformation trade cards).
16 pages. Text in English. A series of eight transformation leaves.

Publisher's pictorial color lithographed paper wrappers, spine crudely hand sewn using thread (done by an early owner), all pages loose and detached from covers.

Scarce juvenile American novelty book. 

Book is old and shows some clear signs of heavy handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.

Binding well age worn, stained, chipped edges/ corners, the flaps all with some splitting down the fold lines, typical signs of handling from young hands. Rare toy item in any condition.

Still agreeable given the small size, fragile nature, date and intended audience.

Please review photos for more detail showing how this rare juvenile optical book item survives. The asking price reflects the condition based on our examination and 35+ years full time exposure to antiquarian books and ephemera of all types. Flaws seen and described have been taken into account, item would be priced far higher if in VG condition.

Book Measures c. 7 1/2" H x 5 3/4" W.
