[Germany]: Otto Maier, [1880s]. 48 cards, each illustrated with 2 chromolithograhic images, contained in the original box. In virtually perfect condition. A rare and wonderful Meggendorfer production, this example as fine as could be hoped for. No copies are recorded at auction, online, or in any catalogues except for the Cotsen Collection (Toys 18828). Meggendorfer was the highly creative producer of books for children in unusual formats, such as moveable books, transformational books, talking books, etc. His productions are by their nature almost impossible to find in perfect condition. It is obvious that this set of childrens dominos has never been touched by children from the day it was purchased.
