Gulliver in Brobdingnag.

London: Westminster/ARTIA/Bancroft & Co. Ltd., n. d. (circa 1958). Tall 4to., [20] pp., oval cut-out cellophane window-pane on upper board through which can be seen a small pop-up of Gulliver. Inside a woman and a girl are depicted watching him pop up from a little cart. Inside the lower board is another two-page pop-up of a large eagle swooping down to take Gulliver in a small gold casket on the shore. Three full page colored illustrations and 15 smaller ones in the 15 pages of text. Mylar jacket. Bound in color-printed pictorial paper boards with pink cloth backstrip. Corners slightly bumped; very good. Early English translation of the first edition. Less common for a Kuba ta book to have two pop-ups and illustrations in text. Bancroft, owned by a Czech refugee from the Nazis, was the first Western publisher to market Kuba ta’s books. Kuba ta, relatively unknown in his time, illustrated and designed over 300 books. Gubig and Köpcke 79. Grolier/Loker 93. (Item Id: 107534)
