[Seidmann-Freud, Tom] Das Zauberboot [Moveable]

Berlin: Herbert Stuffer, 1929.

First edition. Original color pictorial paper covered boards. Famed for its innovative illustration and compostion, "The Magic Boat" has become a classic and sought after early 20th Century Illustrated Chiildren's Book. Fully illustrated in color throughout with four pull-tabs on two separate double-moveable color illustated devices (each comprising two-page assemblies), a moveable hub reveaing rabbits and hedgehogs, and the scarce and seldom found original perforated stencil (Nicths als Fruchte) at rear in half-page pouch. Benjamin describes this book as "the most beautiful of all new children's books" (Works III, 211). Cover with tread mark stains, hub intact, all moveables working, a very scarce and important Jugendstil moveable.
