Alice in Wonderland Panorama with Movable Pictures

Here is a wonderful book/panorama, printed by Raphael Tuck & Sons, Ltd. No.8594. The art work is by A.L. Bowley, this dates from the 1920s. The story is condensed into a verse which takes up three sides.

One of the sides with the verse on has an envelope for putting all the loose pieces in.
As you can see each page has three or four separate card figures or vignettes which are then slotted in to correspond with the verse.

Here is the cover. I think the illustrations are lovely on this, a little softer than Tenniel's.
It is a little damaged, but still a very good example of a rare item, I am going to be putting on my website for sale in the near future. I will let you know how well it sells.
