RED MAGIC BOOK

NOVELTY. RED MAGIC BOOK by Alden Arthur Knipe. NY: Doubleday Page 1910 (1910). 8vo (7 x 8 3/4"), cloth, pictorial paste-on, light shelf wear, near fine. 1st edition. Each left hand page has text in verse by Alden Knipe. The facing page has a full page illustration in red with faint traces of blue done by Brandywine artist Emily Benson Knipe. Hinged into the rear of the book is a large red translucent paper overlay. By placing the overlay on top of each illustration, the red is masked out and a new illustration in blue appears. The pictures correspond to the theme of the poem with the red depicting the "before" scenario and the blue depicting what happens after. Quite scarce.
