PANORAMA. FANTASY. no publication information or text (but purchased with a group of Hebrew books from 1940). Oblong 4to (9 1/4 x 8 1/4"), pictorial boards bound accordion style with 8 illustrations (4 panels illustrated on both sides), VG+. This unusual book actually shows 2 fantasy trips that take place in the Middle East. It begins in a child's room with the window wide open and toys on the floor but no child. The child is seen flying on top of a giant winged insect, he is then seen walking toward a large castle, then boating down a river, then in a flying chariot pulled by a giant bird. Meanwhile the toys have come alive and are guided by a wizard. They visit the Sphinx in Egypt, a walled city (Jerusalem?) and end up back in the room with the wizard performing magic. Theoretically the child could make up any story to accompany the pictures which are fine color lithographs filling each panel.
