Pp (4),v-vi,(6),1-210,(2), frontispiece + 3 plates. 8vo, pale blue cloth black lettering to spine. "To a frontier cabin in the far, lonely reaches of the great Northwest crept an Indian squaw, pursued by the hostile braves o the dreaded Snake tribe. When she slipped back into the forest, to whatever savage fate awaited her at the hands of her enemies, she left behind her, on the cabin doorstep, her half-Indian, half-white baby. And so Gimmery came to the Taggarts and grew up in the white settlement, in ignorance of his redskin heritage. Eventually, the boy made the acquaintance of the old Indian woman, Sequoia, and defended her against the suspicious enmity of the community. Through her, he met the fabled wolf man who was first presented to delighted young readers by Olaf Baker in his popular book, Shasta of the Wolves. The two shared many thrilling adventures together after Gimmery became involved in the theft of Sequoia's medicine bundle. Half-fact, half-fantasy, this story contains all the favorite ingredients of magic and mystery and animal lore that Olaf Baker knows so well how to blend." (from the dj).

84 BALDWIN, Peter SPEAIGHT, George Toy Theatres of the World. First Edition in dustjacket
Zwemmer, London, 1992, ISBN:0302006141 
BALDWIN, Peter. Toy Theatres of the World. Foreword by George Speaight. (London) : Zwemmer, (1992). First Edition. Pp (7),8-175,(1). Ilustrated. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "For over 150 years, throughout the world and by whatever name it is known, the toy theatre has been a source ofenjoyment for children and adults alike. Perhaps the reason for this endur ing popularity has been the ability to provide - in terms of preparing stages, characters, sets, lighting and lines - an excitement akin to that of the real thestre. This extensively illustrated book is the first publication in English to cover the subject of toy theatres worldwide. The section on the English Juvenile Drama studies the designs and work of the leading British toy theatre publishers, such as William West and Benjamin Pollock. This is folowed by a comprehensive examination of toy theatres on the Continent,particularly in Denmark, which still boasts a thriving Toy Theatre Society , and Germany, where the strong interest in the Papiertheater was closely linked to a prolific toy manufacturing industry based in cities like Nuremberg, Neuruppin and Berlin. Especially interesting is Peter Baldwin's study of the toy theatre in America, which provides new evidence to suggest that at least one major New York publisher produced designs that were copied directly from children's journals in England. Finally, the book discusses the influence of the Juvenile Drama on great literary figures such as Chesterton, Dickens,l Thackeray and Mann, as well as providing important practical information on the design and construction of toy theatres." (from the dj). Contents : Foreword. Introduction. 1. The Toy Theatre in England. 2. Papiertheater in Germany. 3. Dukketeater in Denmark. 4. The Kindertheater in Austria. 5. Imagerie Français. 6. Spain and El Teatro de los Ninos. 7. Other Continental Variations. 8. North America. 9. THrough a Child's Eyes. Appendix I - Pollock, Webb, Diaghilev and The Triumph of Neptune.
