  • Collection of six fairy tales told by "King Cole," including "Jack and the Beanstalk" and "Babes in the Wood," with six corresponding full-page pop-ups by German paper-engineer Ernest Nister. One of Nister's contributions to the history of movable books is "grotto" die-cut surround, displaying multi-layered, three-dimensional scenes. This kind of scene had been developed earlier by Dean and then Raphael Tuck, but their constructions had to be lifted up or pulled down manually in order to "pop up." Nister's constructions did not require manipulation, since each scene was attached by a tab to the facing page, so when the page was turned, the multiple layers automatically opened out (information from the Bauman Rare Books website https://www.baumanrarebooks.com/rare-books/nister-ernest/peeps-into/65687.aspx)
  • Date of publication from Montanaro and Hunt
  • Cover title: Peeps into Fairy Land
  • Pen-and-ink drawings and color pictures on title-page and throughout text by Eveline Stuart Hardy; see Hunt, Julia. Peeps into Nisterland
  • Introduction by F.E. Weatherly, who first gained fame by collaborating with Beatrix Potter on A Happy Pair (1890), for which he wrote the poems ("Bunny Bunny Postman" and "Benjamin Bunny") that accompanied Potter's illustrations; stories by Edith Nesbit; see Hunt
  • The 6 color illustrations are pop-up structures that open into 3-dimensional scenes
  • Illustrated chromolithographic upper board, featuring the Babes in the Wood flying in Fairyland on a leaf harnessed to a pair of robins, printed in pale pink, turquoise, cream, green, and gold; red cloth spine; light green [tan?] and white floral-patterned endpapers
  • "Printed in Bavaria" and Nister book number "633" on upper cover
