Pop-up and Movable Books (1993) was a pioneering work in the move to document this novel yet ubiquitous format. These fascinating volumes have been a frequent, yet under-scrutinized phenomenon from the Victorian era through to today. This supplement updates the work begun in the 1993 publication. Building upon the first volume, it indexes books published between 1991 and 1997. Books are accessible through three indexes: title, date, and series. The first volume should be consulted for titles older than 1991.
Praise for the first edition:
...a pioneering attempt to codify a type of book that has previously slipped by librarians and bibliographers almost totally disregarded. ANTIQUARIAN BOOK MONTHLY
...an essential tool for collectors...a useful addition to any library with an interest in children's literature or the history of book design. All in all, it is a well-organized, well-indexed, and thoroughly professional reference work. POPULAR CULTURE IN LIBRARIES
