Vintage 1967 Reproduction of 1859 Hand Shadows to Be Thrown Upon the Wall by Henry Bursill Book

Sorry, this item has sold.

I was given this book back in the 1960's as an "older" kid along with my two younger brothers. We had a rustic cabin in the Rockies and we played with this book to keep ourselves entertained. It's great for kids' imaginations now. It is a 1967 reproduction of a book that was first printed in 1859. The cover is semi-rigid and has some delamination on the outside edge but the pages inside are clean and undamaged. There are instructions for shadow creatures such as a deer, duck, elephant and even grandpa.
