Hoxton, London: B. Pollock, n.d., after 1876. Wraps. Very good. Item #21656 .
Uncut sheets, approximately 7 by 8½ inches, all hand colored: 8 plates of characters, 14 plates of scenes, and 4 plates of wings. The plates are complete, but the text booklet is not present.
The sheets of this toy theater are in near fine condition, with only a couple of edges a bit rough.
The estimated date of publication varies. 'The Forty Thieves' was issued by many both before and after Pollock's edition. But Benjamin Pollock established his firm in Hoxton in 1876 after marrying the daughter of another publisher, John Redington.
