Seidmann-Freud, T., Das Wunderhaus. Ein Bilderbuch zum Drehen, Bewegen und Verwandeln. 6.-10. Tsd. With numerous illustrations in colors, 3 foldable and 1 with rotating mechanism as well as 3 stencil plates in rear tuck-in flap. Berlin, H. Stuffer 1929. Orig. half cloth in colors. 8vo. 6 ll.Schug 659. - Düsterdieck 7194. - Murken 8. - Fine copy of this classic work of children literature. The clear and poetic pictures by Tom Seidmann-Freud (actually Martha Gertrud Freud, a niece of Sigmund Freud) stylistically follow Expressionism and New Objectivity. "Her experiments in working up traditional materials in books with mechanisms, such as Das Wunderhaus (1927) and Das Zauberboot (1929)" is remarkable (translation of quote from Doderer III, 373). - Minimally thumbed, pastedowns with signature of a child, 2 small splits with trace of adhesive film.
